Hi, Ray:

Am still looking for pictures, etc. and will get some to you as soon as possible. Christine said she sent you a few, hope you got them. I found out at the Morman Church library that in Spanisg and English some letters are interchangeable, so that explains the mystery of Antonia Yires. "y"s in Spanish are sometimes "i"s in English, also "r"s can be "n"s and "s" and "z" are interchangeable, so "Yires" in Spanish translates to "Inez" in English. Also, so many of those families used middle names instead of first names. Just thought I'd pass that on in case you didn't know. Have a few things to copy off for you if I get a chance, it's a rat race here. Polly Conard
