In Reply to: Abreu Listings in NM Roots Ltd by Angela of 352

Hey my name is Beau, I'm from New Mexico -just decided to see if my last name was on the net. Hey I don't know too much about my family name, I was told Abreu was town or villiage in spain really close to France in the Pyraneese mountains. I heard they wanted to become an independent nation, I also heard that a lot of jews excaped there and I think the term is Bosc or somthin, I was justa wonderin what Abreu meant in English and if we have some great History or somthin. I was named after my great great grandfather who had some land here in norther New Mexico. The "Bo-vee-yawn" Beaubien Land Grant. Well if anybody can help, mail me at beaubiennabreu@yahoo.com
