The Cordero family history website is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Mariano Cordero, the progenitor of many Cordero families in California and in Santa Barbara in particular. Mariano Cordero was a soldado de cuera, a leather-jacket soldier, and one of the first Corderos born in Baja California.
The first few pages include information on the Cordero family in general. The last page, "Genealogy," is intended for anyone who would like to share their family's genealogy. At present, the page contains information about my family. Please send along your genealogy, any ideas, information, and especially images to Jonathan Cordero (email@example.com).
1. DNA: William Cordero II and Jonathan Cordero are currently trying to determine the Y-DNA Haplogroup of the Cordero lineage (Miguel, Mariano, etc.).
2. Catalogo de Pasajeros a Indias added to the database page.
These are lists of passengers who sailed from Spain to New Spain during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, although only a few centuries are available online. The lists are more formally known as Catálogo de pasajeros a Indias durante los siglos XVI, XVII y XVIII.
3. Where did your ancestors live in Santa Barbara County in 1880 and in 1900? The new "MAPS" page maps it out.
