Patty I agree with your origin of the Payan family name being French. I posted on this site more than 10 years ago, but at the time genealogy was not very popular with the Payan family from Mexico or Latin America. Can I have more information on the Payan family? It seems that you are very knowledgeable in this area.

One of my great-ants who lives in La Paz,Baja California, Mexico has mentioned that her parents told her that we came France. I was young at the time and never asked when?

My Great-Great grand parents are from Sinaloa, Mexico, but we did hear that they came from Chihuahua. They are from a little town (Badiraguato) that boarders Chihuahua, and Durango in the Sierra.

My Ancestors are:
Silverio Pay�n and Eugenia Arredondo (Great-Great-Grandparents)

Manuel Pay�n Arredondo and Francisca Guerrero Gast�lum (Great-Grand-Parents)

Rosario Pay�n Guerrero and Maria Guadalupe Serrano Gast�lum (Grandparents)
