Dear Harry,

No, I just found out--I recently searched names for a family here on (which I cannot open now) and there was no indication. There were also no records for the Fuentes families on this NM site even though way back New Mexico and Mexico, records begin to merge.

I had seen an article years ago in the Albuquerque Journal where they posed the possibility of Closet Jews and family secrets. We had a family secret--a letter that said "son please return from that far country" (New Mexico??--Mexico??) If there were more secrets, or traditions, they were completely lost to us. I have not known how to break through to this information.

Look at these people on this site--they don't know either.

I hope you can help. We have considered making the trip to Nuevo Leon, but we would hope to find a contact.
