By Raul Luna - Posted on 27 December 2006

Hi, My name is Raul Luna of Rialto, California. I have been working on my genealogy for several years now. My primary interest has been Juchipila, Zacatecas, where my father, David Hernandez Luna, was born at El Rancho de Vallecitos, in 1905. Most of his ancestors were born in Juchipila, and it is the location where I have found most of the family information. Moyahua, which is near by, is also another place where relatives have come from. My grandfather, Atanacio Robles Luna, died during the Revolution War of 1909 while assisting in burying their fellow dead soldiers. Atanacio contracted a disease while doing this, and was buried with his fellow soldiers. The location is not quite clear. The Luna family in Juchipila is very, very, large..all grandfathers came from large families. Recently, I found a gold mine of informatin on gggrandfather, Pedro Gonzales Robles. Surnames that I am searching for from Juchipila are: Luna, Estrada, Rodriquez, Lamas,Robles, Flores,Esparza, & Reinoso (Reynoso).
My mother's side of the family, the Cristernas, came from Jerez, Zacactecas. Athough the Cristernas were from Jerez, they moved to Guanacevi, Durango, where my mother and her sister were born. Some surnames connected to the Cristernas are Acuna, Lopez, Avila, Medina, Castanon, and Cardenas.
I noticed that Linda Castanon Long also belongs to this group. Well, Linda and I have a connection with our Castanon family. My grandfather's sister, Margarita, married Librado Castanon....one of Linda's relatives.
I have been married for 43 years, have 3 adult children, 4 grandchildren. I am retired from the Postal Service after 31 years, enjoy coaching girls softball, but genealogy is my biggest hobby and keeps me well occupied.
I have over 1200 names in my Family Tree, and I have submitted the info to the Family Tree Maker Organization, though not all the info I have submitted shows up.

Raul, welcome to the group.

What are the Cardenas names you are looking for? I can trace my Cardenas family back to early 1700's in Tlatenango, Zacatecas. Take a look at my files if you are interested.

Thanks,
Angie Godina
