My wife Gloria and I are still here, Xossef. You can't lose us that easily. We're slow but steady...como las tortugas. We don't have any great grandchildren yet. Our latest grandchild is Elena Lin, 8 months old. Her father is our youngest son, Eduardo Mateo Cancio DELGADO Calvillo. Her mother is Janeen Louie Wong, fourth generation Chinese-American. Elena's GGGGGGGGGParents are: Pedro de Campos and Xacinntta de Espinossa from Pinos, Zacatecas. I estimate their birth at 1660/1665. That's on my father's side. Gloria would have to do her own calculation for her side.

We are in Albany, CA. How does Elena get to Pinos? Here goes: Oxnard, CA (me)>Tepatitlan, Jal(dad)>Aguas, Ags(GP)>el Mesquite, Encarnacion de Diaz, Jal(married Garcia Espitia)>el Capulin, Jal>la Sieneguita, Jal>Lagos de Moreno, Jal(Espitia married De Campos)>Pinos. Considering that I have ancestors who were Piro, Chiricahua, Tepecan or , Basque and Gloria is half Puerto Rican including African, Taino, Basque and yet-to-be determined others...poor Elena will need a pamphlet to figure out exactly what kind of a "salad" she is. Fascinating...huh?

David Delgado, retired and beginnin to enjoy it.

David,

thanks to you and to all the others that have replied. I wanted to see
just a little response. . .I was having visions of everyone quitting the
Nuestros Ranchos group, but I can see that there is still a few getting
and replying to messages. Thanks.

Un abrazo a Elena Lin. . .what a wonderful story she will have to learn
about her history. Boy one day she will be 90 years old and think of her
Grandfather David and Grandmother Gloria and remember what a great gift
they passed on to her. . .the gift of her history. Our history is such
an important gift especially in times when some don't even know their
grandparents.

Saludos a la familia,

xossef

ps: wow I thought I'd google xossef and came up with next to nothing
other than this math professor. cool.
