By mendezdetorres - Posted on 21 December 2006

My parents are Jose Gabriel Mendez Cortez and Ampelia del
Camino Garcia. I was born in San Jose California. On 2 Jun 1992 ( I am 14 years of age) I was born in the
Mormon Church. My grandparents are Martin Mendez Serrano (Feb 1917)
and Maria del Refugio Cortez Moran (1935) she is currently living.
My grandfather Martin died in 2001. My maternal grandparents are
Antonio del Camino Lizalde II (1935) (currently living) and Maria Carolina Garcia del
Camino (1940) she died in 2003. I started Genealogy about 2 years ago. My grandfather started in 1985
so I continued for him and fell in love with genealogy. My hobbies
are golfing, coin and stamp collecting. I descend from Mariano del Camino Martinez who
people call those rich people with those HUGE haciendas from back in
the day but then the government split the haciendas with the poor
which was nice of them. He owned La Luz. in Huanusco, Zacatecas.
I love reading. I like to travel around with my family. I have been told by my grandpa that he possibly descends from King Rizzardo di Camino IV of Treviso he went to a genealogy
conference back in 1987 and a man helped me with a lot of stuff. But
obviosly I don't have evidence of this connection. He is from the 1300's in Treviso Italy. Im pretty young for my age and working on my genealogy but very mature for my age. What I do know is that I descend from the conquistador Lord Juan del Camino de Montanes this was passed down through the generations many of the few things. But then again I also don't haveany substanial evidence of this link. It was said Lord Juan settled at the southeastern edge of Aguascalientes and San Luis Potosi. This was in 1542. He came in 1521 and relocated there. Im at the point that I have connected my Camino ancestors to Calvillo, Aguascalientes. Thanks to Joseph. Thats all about me Thanks to everyone being such great members of this group. Merry Christmas.

Daniel you did a good job introducing yourself to the group. I only wish I had started doing genealogy at an earlier age like you but then again I would not have had th time I do in retirement. I'm glad my research into the Mendez family in Tamazula Jalisco gave you more information on our joint lineage since your gr-grandfather Francisco Mendez was my gr-grandmother Maria Mendez's brother. Just think, they were born in 1883 and 1884 and we are just getting to know each other through Nuestros Ranchos.. What a gift this group is to all of us. I have to think you are the youngest member at age 14.. well done!

Daniel,

Welcome to the group. It is awesome that at such a young age you have such a keen interest in genealogy. Your grandfather gifted you with a rich legacy and you chose to continue in his footsteps. If in this short time you have already made connections with some in this group, what a treat and an honor.

One thing I would dare to advise you on is not to make assumptions about anything. Sometimes when we make assumptions before we get the evidence, we are blinded by what we think it should be and fail to see or to search in what may be the true path of our ancestors instead of the one we have pre-supposed or pre-imposed on them. Our ancestors usually show us the way if we are willing to stop, look and listen to them.

My best to you,
Alicia,
San Jose, Calif
