In Reply to: Looking for the Family. by Veronica Mulero Zarate of 184

Hi Veronica. My family is from the region of Tolima in the upper Magdalena River. They are Zarate and we heard that the family-name is originally from Northern Spain. In the basque language means something like "a spot in a small forest" or rather "a small forest". There are many castilians with basque names (because of the repopulation policies of the christian knights). I do not know if it helps.
