I didn't mean to set up high standards of spelling for anyone, I just pointed out a mispelling, we all make errors all the time and I appreciate it when someone corrects me. You seem to have some genealogical knowledge of the family name, I would love to learn more about the early Villaseņors and confirm the story I have about the Moorish Malarabia brothers who became Villaseņors after giving Queen Isabela Catolica some money, it would explain the crescent moon and seven stars in the family crest and if so was it them who came to the new world or their offspring. I've also heard that one of this brothers was present during the arrest/imprisonment of Emperor Moctezuma I in his own palace during the time when Cortez had been invited by the aztec emperor to stay in his palace. I have some good information of the 6 generation preceding me. We were originally from Guanajuato.
Yours truly,
Marcos Villaseņor
