Never heard of them. Who are they?

My Alderete ancestry is very iffy. My paternal lineage that I uploaded traces back through my gggrandmother Silvestra Romo in Coahuila back to Aguascalientes. Through my father's maternal side.

But my father never knew his dad. I'm trying to verify that line. My father was Ernie Alderete Senior. He told me his dad was Kiko Alderete, a judge in Ysleta Texas.

I found that Kiko recently. And his lineage takes us back to Martin Alderete who was born in Ysleta in 1818, his son Benigno Alderete who was born in the same place around 1847, his son Kiko who was born around the end of the century in Ysleta. And my dad born in Ysleta in 1923.

I recently found who I believe is my father's younger sister. A wonrderdul, loving women who accepted me as her nephew without hesitation, or question. But of course her DNA can't be tested to prove the connection:(

A work in progress. Hopefully, the library in El Paso will reopen sometime this year and I might find some anwers there.
