Not sure whether we are related or not, but you mentioned two last names from which I have relatives. My dad's last name is Jordan, but he was born in San Fernando, Ocotepeque, his parents were Onofre Jordan and Juana Pacheco, an my dad has told me about to grandparents of his, Bonifacio Galvan and Remigia Jordan.

From what my dad tells me, his dad and other (two or three) siblings (there was a female sibling there) moved from the Guatemalan border to Honduras (Ocotepeque) at some point. In Ocotepeque I know that my dad has some relatives whose last names are Galvan, Pinto, and perhaps Aranda (not sure about this last one, though).

I am not sure at what point they (my dad's parents, or perhaps only his mother, because I know his dad died when he was ten years old) moved to Azacualpa (valle), Santa Barbara, but they did, and that is where he has other relatives; most of whom have the Arita last name, and perhaps very few Jordan.

I also know that in San Pedro Sula he has, besides one of his sisters, two cousins, a female, and a male whose last name is Aranda; he is also a pastor of a christian church.

I am pretty sure that our family might have come from somewhere else (Spain, perhaps) because my dad's eyes are of a color that is not blue and not green, perhaps something in between. I also know that my dad has some relatives in Guatemala.

Sorry I cannot give you any more information about your relatives, but I can tell you that it caught my eye to see those two last names (Jordan and Aranda) in your post.
