I am seeing your post on ancestry from 2000 and would like to encourage you to do a Ydna test on FTdna.com . My husband and his father did the Ydna test and they have two matching Pena men. one man in CA (now deceased) whose line was TX/MX. The other match is a Pena man who posted no ancestor or fam tree on FTdna. I have reached out to him a few times but he never responds which is quite common on FTdna for whatever reason.
I hope you will think about doing this as it is an excellent way to hook up one's line to other people who have long trees back in time and whose trees can provide significant clues to one's lineage.
Please feel free to contact me at bettepena AT hotmail .com regarding your Ydna.
I look forward to hearing from you.
