Perhps, if you transcribe the Inquisiton document in Spanish here, someone could translate it to English.

Regarding Italians in Mexico, I live in Monterey Park. My city, as well as the adjoining cities of San Gabriel, Rosemead, Commerce, East Los Angeles.... were all granted by the King of Spain to an Italian gentleman.

There's a few streets named after him, El Repetto being the major one. I think his name was Alessandro Repetto.

Monterey Park was orignally called Ramona Acres, named after the mythical Mexican maiden.

I believe there's an annual pageant dedicated to her, but not in this immediate area.

My city was envisioned as the new Santa Barbara. All buildings were to be built in the Spanish style, with red clay tile roofs.

But a Chinese majority moved in, and completely reversed all the ordinances.
The English-only initiative in California began in my city as a reaction to signage only in Chinese.

Rose,

I would love to get a copy of that and would try my best to help
you transcribe and translate accurately. I had heard something
similar (had heard that that's why the family had to run a proof
of nobility), but had no date on it. Please consider my offer...

Thanks,
Connie

Connie,

I'm in the process of scanning the four page document on Andres.

This is how I found him: http://www.agn.gob.mx/SCA2/busargenaii.php,
then entered "Ruiz de Esparza" under document group 999 (Todos los grupos documentales). It took me awhile but can also be done under document group 61 (Inquisition). I usually use group 999 when I first start on a new person.

Results:
Clave de Registro 171445
No. Grupo 61
Grupo Documental Inquisición
Fecha AÑO 1581
Volumen 126
Expediente 1
Fojas 2
Descripción DENUNCIA PRESENTADA POR PEDRO CARRILLO, RECEPTOR DE LA REAL AUDIENCIA, CONTRA ANDRES RUIZ ESPARZA POR SOSPECHAS DE LUTERANO.

Then I went to Familysearch.org under the library catalog and found volume 126 which gave me film number:
Procesos v. 126-127 VAULT INTL Film
34857

I have also found another relation in this same manner, Bernarda Salado from Aguascalientes.
