I am a 2nd cousin to Ken Salazar who is currently running for Atty Gen. for state of Colo. Grew up with his dad Henry who is my fathers first cousin. I too was born in same area as Ken and his brothers and sisters. I have Salazars to 1425, Ken and I are 17 generation of Salazars in current USA. We are also 17 generation Cantu's. Need info on that family as well. I am writing a family history book starting with Don Juan de Salazar (1425)of Auvergne, France,; to current day.
