In 2015, Dr. Wendy Kramer, a Canadian researcher, investigating a series of Spanish legal documents from a 1532 lawsuit, found that one of the witnesses in the lawsuit was named Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. That witness testified under oath that he was born in Palma de Micergilio (Palma del Río, Córdoba, Spain) , a town in the province of Córdoba in Spain. Other details of the witness's biography match known facts about the explorer.
