I too have a Rafael Felix that was from the Tepetongo area. He was the brother of my ggg-grandfather Felipe Felix. Rafael was married to Gregoria Salazar who was also an ancestor of mine. Rafael's father Marcelino (married to Juana de Acevedo) used the surname Felix de Tinajero, and some descendants used the Felix or the Tinajero or both or they would alternate between the two every time they had a child baptized. Sometimes they would use their mothers' surnames which has made finding them a challenge. I see in the IGI that a member of the LDS church submitted a record for a Rafael Felix born "about 1766" in Salitrillo, Zacatecas.

My ancestors used the church at Tepetongo for baptisms and weddings, but they really lived at Salitrillo or Marecito. Perhaps this Marcelino Felix (Feliz/Felis) had a father or brother named Rafael also. They tended to name their sons after their fathers or brothers or uncles.

I would be anxious to see your family tree. Could you ask Arturo to upload it to the GEDCOM section? He has already uploaded mine. My other surnames are Olague, Suriano, Munos, Acevedo, Escobedo, Quijas, Salasar, Mata, de Aro, Lucio, Banegas, Alvares, Flores, Montes, Campos, Miranda, Vasques, Valdes, Ramires, de la Torre, Berumen, de Luna, Ortis.

of adding his familytree to my it was very funny to find out my husband and
I share a branch somewhere along the way, (although we met in Los Angeles) I
will be asking for help downloading it to GEDCOM.


Emily I was not aware of the Tinajero-Felix connection thanks, I am in the
process of uploading my tree.
