Hi all,

Does anyone have any information regarding the surname Medrano in San Francísco Cerro Gordo, or Atontonilco?

I've just made a connection with a 3rd cousin through 23andMe. My great grandfather was Silviano Medrano born in 1904 in Jalisco, married to Maria Vazquez. I found out his father was Sixto Medrano, born in 1870 in Jalisco, married to Albina Medina.

My 3rd cousin's GGrandfather was Albino Medrano. They also had another brother named Mucio Medrano. My 3rd cousin says her grandfather was Mayan Indian and Chichmacan. This leads me to ask where they would have gotten the surname "Medrano" if this were the case.

The surname Medrano has Spanish origins. It even seems to be sort of an uncommon surname. Does anyone know the origins of this surname in this area?


To add to this, my GGGGrandfather was Jose Salome Medrano (father of Sixto Medrano).

Jose Salome Medrano
Gender: Male
Baptism Date: 13 nov. 1847
Baptism Place: Santa Maria de Guadalupe, Arandas, Jalisco, Mexico
Father: Jose Maria Medrano
Mother: Maria Santos Relles
Maternal Grandfather: Agustin Reyes
Maternal Grandmother:
Ygnacia Arebabalo


I can go back 3 more generations from Jose Salome Medrano.
