If you are planning on registering for one of our conferences you can speed up the process for DNA testing by submitting your Family Tree ahead of time. The Family Tree template can be downloaded under “Resources.” Fill it out on the family side where you believe you have a Baca family member. Scan and return to us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate in the subject of the email which conference you plan to attend. If you are a direct descendant of Cristobal Baca II and Ana Lara you will be contacted by our genealogist, Joyce Gonzales. Please email or call us at 505-450-5902 for further questions.
Registration will be limited to four members per registrants. Last year we had people who registered for themselves and 8 to 10 guests and only two or three showed up for the conference. This caused a huge backup during registration keeping many people from entering on time and missing part of the conference. Our goal is to keep the conferences FREE to provide access to all.
We will provide FREE DNA TESTING to participants who are direct descendants of Cristobal Baca II and his wife Ana Moreno Lara. Testing is specific for the CCM1 genetic mutation and nothing else. Our genealogists will verify your family tree
If we cannot verify your family tree but you still believe you are related and/or feel you need to be tested you can be tested by paying $175 (at cost to us). If you are found to be positive your fee will be refunded.
If you would like to schedule BFHP to come to your area for a presentation and on-site testing or if you’d like more information, please reach us using our Contact form. We look forward to hearing from you.
