There have been quite a few new members that have joined the list since
we moved to the new site.

If you haven't had a chance yet please do introduce your self on the
Research list: research@nuestrosranchos.com

Make sure to give us the Surnames in the specific areas within our
Target area of research that you are researching. If you have any
questions or want to make comments please feel free to do so on whatever
list would be appropriate:

(for General topics)
general@nuestrosranchos.com

(for Announcements)
announce@nuestrosranchos.com

(for Research topics)
research@nuestrosranchos.com

thanks,
joseph

ps: I sent this "Announcement" message to the Research List because I think Introductions should be sent to the Research list since they specifically will include
Surnames and areas of Research. Don't be intimidated if you can't figure out which list to mail your comments to. There won't be a "proper forum" officer ready
to pounce on you if you post to the wrong list. For those that want to help redirect messages to an appropriate list just change the address sent to the group before
clicking on "reply."

Pat,

Our next meeting is on Saturday July 28th in Brentwood with the possibility of a change in location depending on how many people will be attending.

Being that we live so close to each other, maybe one day we can try and meet up. You can contact me off-line at alliecar@pacbell.net and we can discuss this further. When I was beginning my research about a year and a half ago a member of the Ranchos group who is now a very dear friend, invited me to her favorite FHC in Fremont. I met up with Helyn in Fremont and life has not been the same since. We regularly meet up there to do our research, to share family history stories, research strategies etc, etc and we have traveled together to Sacramento's group meeting.

Looking forward to meeting up with you and maybe your husband too to compare our family history. From the looks of his family surnames, we have much in common. I will bring the book with me that is now out of print and not available for sale anywhere that I know of.

Alicia

Alicia,

From your listing the following "same," surnames appear in my husband's ancestry.

Alvares, Aguayo, Garcia, de Frias, Duran, Esparza, Aguirre, Martinez and Rubalcava.

Tomorrow I'll figure out how to upload an "ahnentafel," chart, that will make it easier in comparing what I do have.

4) choose "File Folder" and create your folder using the established format

5) then go to "browse" toward the bottom and select your Genealogy

hope this wasn't too confusing,

Alicia, July 29th in Brentwood sounds good. My husband would like to attend also. Do I need to register for this meeting, and if so how do I go about obtaining a registration form, plus an outline of the discussion topics? I would love to meet you and Helyn, maybe at the meeting in Brentwood we could exchange addresses and discuss future meeting locations.. I must admit there's a lot that I need to learn about my husband's ancestry, but I'm more than willing to do so. Sorry to read that the publication is no longer in print nor available. Pat

I am very curious about the meeting referenced below. I was born in Nochistlan, I have traced a bulk of my family (Legaspi, Frias, Huerta, Mejia, Jauregui, plus) over the years....This meeting in Brentwood California?

Alicia, thank you for the "warm welcome." I don't have Avelars in my family, my husband's, 6th ggfather, was a Luis de Avalos b. abt 1697 Mexico; died bef 1750 m. to Maria Perez daughter of Nicolas Mexia Estrada and Mariana Isla Sandobal. Maria and Luis were the parents of Maria Teresa de Avalos, not sure if this is just one of those spelling variations of a surname that so often is found. We're almost neighbors, I live in Tracy. The publication that you noted, Nochistlan Zacatecas" Los Duran, su Parroquia y otras familias antiguas, "on loan," from a local library? Tino (my husband) has Duran ancestors from Nochistlan. I would love to see that book. His maternal ancestry resided in Nochistlan for over 300 yrs. It's his paternal line of Corbera that proven to be difficult for me. I only have about 300 in my computer for his family, but there's a lot of siblings that I didn't add. I bet with your Portuguese ancestry you and I probably are related. I just recently
had my mtDNA tested, and I'm in the process of talking my husband into getting his mtDNA and yDNA tested. How exciting it would be to find a common ancestor in Tino's lines with you or your husband. Pat

Patricia,

Welcome to the group, I hope you enjoy this group as much as I do. I have met some wonderful people that have become very good friends.

You said you have been researching your Portuguese roots for 10 years, do you have any ancestors with the surname of Abelar or Avelar? Avelar is my maiden name and every Avelar I have encountered that is not a known member of my family has been Portuguese. I live and worked in Silicon Valley and came into contact with many Portuguese people with this surname.

Now to your husband's ancestry, you list his areas of research as "La Jabonera" in Nochistlan Zac. I have a book on loan which is titled, "Nochistlan Zacatecas" Los Duran, su Parroquia y otras familias antiguas. Much of the history and geneaology within this book is from Rancho La Jabonera, most of the focus is on "Duran" but like all Geneaology it branches off to many other surnames.

How much research have you done to date on your husband's family. I have probably around 2,000 plus entries in my database and who knows, we may have some connections.The only surname that we have in common is Aguirre which is on my husband's side. The surnames of Perez, Delgadillo and Lopez are indirect family ties.

I look forward to hearing from you Patricia.

Saludos,
Alicia Avelar, Olmos de Carrillo

Hello Enrique: Yes, this meeting will be held in Brentwood, CA, in Contra Costa County. If you are interested in meeting this awesome group of researchers, we can put you in touch with Maria Cortes, the awesome organizer.

Members will be attending from the Sacramento, and San Jose areas also, from a few hamlets in-between. Hope you can join us. Helyn

I had the 12 marker DNA done by my Uncle Louis Gutierrez, my mothers brother, who was born in Tamazula Jalisco in 1924 but the genealogy has the Gutierrez family in Chilchota Michocan in the mid 1600's to 1780 or so when they migrated to Jalisco. To my surprise the results came back Haplogroup N. Group N comes from China and Mongolia then into Siberia... My mother was one of 8 children who all were very fair skinned but do all have small slanted eyes. As a child my mother was teased about her blue "Chinese eyes." and my cousin who is an art instructor is always greeted by Asians as one of their own.. he said he believed the Gutierrez DNA would prove he had Asian blood... he's the only one not surprised by the results.. The other thing that surprised me was that in looking through Gary Felix's site there were no other Haplogroup N participants.. that dissappointed me. I had shared earlier that my MTDNA was Haplogroup A which I thought explained our families slanted eyes...

just thought I'd share, Linda
