Introduction: Richard Ibarra
Saludos a todos! Hello everyone!
My name is Richard Ibarra and I am researching my mother's family in Los Altos.
While I have researched my grandmother's father's family, the Angulo Hernandez lin back to Miguel de Angulo and Domingo Hernandez Gamino, I am not 100% positive on the line as I have only been able to use what i have been told by my grandparents, family search and nuestros ranchos to this point. Continuing with my grandmothers family her mother was Maria de la Luz Bravo Gonzales, daughter of Juan Bravo and Maria Refugio Gonzales. As of yet I have not been able to find anything about these two but I do know Juan was alive well into the 1980s and lived in Tepatitlan and that his mother was named Filomena Arambula.
My grandfather's family I know his grandfather was named Gil Ibarra Padilla and his fathers name was Ricardo but have been unable to find more. My grandfather's mother was Maria Maximiana Melano Gonzales and I have traced back the Melanos to a Policarpio Melano and a Maria de Jesus Rodriguez but can not find anymore. There are varying stories from my great uncles and grandfather as to how or why but they believe that the name was Medrano before it was changed to Melano. I have not researched the Gonzales family too much either but Maria Maximianas grandparents were Tomas Gonzales and Panfila Martin.
Any help for further ways to investigate would be greatly appreciate, thank you do much for this site it has helped alot and if I can help in any way please let me know. Thank you all! Gracias a todos!
