Hi Jackie:

I was just surfing this genealogy forum and saw your message.

Believe it or not I am a "Balles" and my grandfather is from Mexico but somewhere along the line when my grandfather crossed over his name was changed. Supposedly the real family name is 'BAIZ'. I have never been able to figure that out because how could he (my g/f)have been given a alien regisration card under BALLES, social security number etc. etc.??? Anyway, his
children, among them my dad,runs under BALLES.
I plan to request my g/f's social security record to see how he spelled out his father's name. Need to figure out what happened there.

Anyway if you want to talk please email me.
