Hi Manuel, thanks for your encouraging words. Maybe there is still a chance that I will find my roots. Where can a person go or write to get info? Specially in Mx. I hear that all records are kept in Saltillo Is that true? Years ago when my dad was still living he got a letter from the Mx. goverment telling him that he was entitled to some land in Mx. because his dad had lost his life in the revolution, but I never saw the letter and my dad refused the land. I was already married and had moved out of state. When I found out that he had refused the land I was very upset.
All I know is that my father was born to Roque Salazar and Teresa Gomez in Laredo on 12/12/1911. Roque was a tailor and Teresita worked in a bakery or had a bakery. My dad would tell us that he remembered the zemitas she use to make and all the deserts she would make for fiestas. I plan to go to Laredo this summer and see if I can get my grandfather's birth certificate. That is if he was born there. My dad always said that he had spanish blood in him.
So you are also from Laredo.There was a cleaners in Laredo when my dad opened his cleaners and I think it was the Salazar Cleaners. Are you related to that family? I lived on Coke & Flores. I never knew what bario that was. I always wanted to go back "home" but after mom and dad died we had to sell the property cause there was onbody to take care of it. I hated to do that cause my great-grandfather (on my mother's side) had bought that property when he came here from Mx. It was nice to hear from a form Laredo resident Thank you for writting.
