I been doing some digging with my family and Here is My side of what I know: By 1890 Greatgreatgrand father was living in his born land in Progreso Guerrero Mexico and Got married around early 1900's With MariaDeJesus,Then my Abuelo was the 1st of 8th who was born around 1910 died in 1982 Wich he died In axochiapan,Morelos but the rest of the Brothers moved upNorth to Chihuaha last knowledge of my Bisaabuela The reason that they Moved out of Progreso,Guerrero is because they were getting Killed by other families that were jelous 'cause all of them were Tall,white and look nothing alike of the other people and Use to be able to sail smooth in town. Now a word of advice Do no and I mean do not travel to Progreso,Guerrero because Family and friends of the family had been kill there before and most likely still will,But I have a cousin that went incognito with a sister of mi Abuelo five years ago and took pictures and has been researchin the family history a little over 6 years and she hopes to be done with the book by june Now if a get a copy I'll let you jnow what She found out (if a get a copy!)Oh I like the Maya derivied So Now I will tell People That I am a First(payan)and proud of it too. Hasta.
