Yes. That's why I started work on his family. Although I have been removed as a manager by an excited wikitree joiner sinced I began my work, I was asked by a family member of Pancho Villa's to create these profiles, as they will soon be doing their DNA, and would like to connect with more family members if possible.

New information on this line of questioning... I got an email asking me about DNA for Pancho Villa. If you are curious, interested, or already know of an on-going project, please drop me a line. Thank you!
Hello, I am college student making a short documentary on how Villa is my relative. I was wondering if you have kept up with ancestry or made any further discoveries on his lineage of relatives. If you have, I am curious to know, thanks!
I have heard stories from my sisters husbands family that they are related to Pancho Villa and he was there relative. All sorts of other stories also about him, at there old home of there grandparents. My sisters and niece and nephews would like to know if there are any relatives? Or how would they get a dna test to see if they are really his family?
Hi Robin! We think Pancho Villa might be our great great uncle. We suspicion that our great grandfather was one of his sister’s sons.  Is there a way to check if our DNA matches his family? Thank you! Hector

I am also very interested in the DNA testing for descendants. Has there been any further progress on this?

I did find this article that is very interesting and I notice that his line is NOT documented on Wikitree.
