Dear Enrique Santa Maria,
I read: concerning De Alba Family
from Jalisco, Mexico in the Alba Family Genealogy Forum with great interest.
For years I've been trying to do more research into my family's roots, but have hit dead end after dead end.
I live in San Francisco, CA where my father Martin Sergio De Alba moved from Lagos De Moreno,Mexico back in approx 1955-56.
He is the son of Don Jesus Maria De Alba (of San Juan de los Lagos, I believe). My grand father was married to Raquel Moreno and had 6 children:
-Irma De Alba (married to Humberto Fuentes of Leon, Gto)
-Martin De Alba (my dad, married to Maria Guadalupe Villalobos of Lagos, Jal)
-Raquel De Alba (married to Alfonso Martin of Lagos, Jal-he died approx 1976)
-Pablo De Alba ( died approx 1964? -never married}
-Nelida De Alba (married Alfredo of Leon, Gto)
-Jose Maria De Alba (married Josefina of Lagos, Jal)

I would like to know where this lineage comes from and who first brought the De Alba name to Mexico.
thank you,
will do more research for sure now!
