...It all started by my daughter telling me about a school asignment: " find out about the historical background of your last name".
Looking through some web sites, I came across this site.
I know that there is allways a desire to know our roots, but I have not been that diligent in the past. Now I am more intrigued.
I am from Mexico, D.F., and a transplant to southern CA. My father was from Jalisco, and some of his family established roots in CA back in the 1940's or 1950's.
Does anyone know what the origins of our name De Anda are?, what is the meaning of the name?, what is the significance of it?, how back can we trace our name?, etc., etc.
Please, if you have any information, would you like to share it?
