I recently took a DNA test to find my family,as I am adopted. I found 1 relative that is as close as a 2nd cousin, his name is Michael Gerard Gutierrez. He said his family is from Rowe, San Juan and Las Vegas. I am 43 yrs old and found out about the adoption only a few months ago. I was born April 27,1968 in Kansas City Kansas. I was also told that my birth mother and possibly father are from NM or possibly Southern CO. So after the DNA test and Mr Gutierrez, the story seems to fit. I was told her name was Marlena or Marlene, possibly about 18 at the time, so born about 1950. I was told she passed away in an auto accident in maybe 1970 or so, but have found a lot of lies in the story that was told to me. I was also told that around 1973 or so, that a man tracked me down to take me back to my birth family but did not succeed. After DNA matches started showing up the names showing up the most are..Montoya..Martin...Trujillo..Gallegos..Hinojos..Aragon...Pacheco. Any info would be helpful. I do have a facebook page. Daniel Elsrode not Daniel Anthony Elsrode, he is my son. Thank you
