 I was very excited to find this forum. I have not heard to much of the history of my father's family lines. Except that we are suppose to have Spanish jewish and Mexican Indian blood in us. The family came from a small village in a state Mexico, Michiocan. The village is called Purepero, A lot of family still lives there. I have never been there, so the only thing I know about it is from family members who have visited it. We also have family in the town of Morelos, and Mexico city. In 1974, we had a family reunion in Southern California. In Norwalk park in the Los Angeles area, I heard that there was only about only one third or one fourth of the family there, I attended the reunion. We had about 800 people there it was pretty exciting to meet so many relatives. My Grandfather passed away I think when I was in the seventh grade about 1966 or 1967. He was blind and he would stay with different family's. He would stay about one or two weeks at each family's home, and I remember having a great time with him when I was really young. My mother say's that he would speak Aztec to her and she would have to tell him not to speak aztec because she didn't understand him, and he would just laugh. Apparently there was some kind of riff in the family and that was why he migarated to the U.S. but I don't know what it was the first time I heard about that was last year, when I ask my dad something about the family and he told me and my wife about it with tears in his eye's. I heard two stories about my grandfather who's name was Rafael, (1) was that he rode a horse from Purepero to the Riverside , Ca. area. And then began buying and selling horse's. He would ride over to San Juan Capistrano and herd them over to the Saboba Indian Reservation in Riverside county near Hemet and sell them to the Saboba's and then stay with them and gamble and them go back and buy more horse's and come back and sell them to the Saboba's and he did that for awhile. (2) I heard that he was a  in Riverside, Ca. and that was where he and my Grandmother were married. I never met my grandmother, she passed away before I was born in 1956. My Father's name is Ladislao Mendez Torres, his brothers name's were they have all passed on now, Adolfo Torres, Louis Torres, Rafael Torres, my dad's sisters names are Josephina (Josie) Torres, Ruth(Cucah) I don't remember her married name. My uncle Louie had a twin sister who died when they were in their twenties. Anyway if you would like to know more about my family please e-mail me and I will continue this Saga!?
Thanks and I hope to hear from you.

I know very little about my Torres family. My mother, Maria Laura Torres, was born in St. Michael's Parish, Barbados in 15 Aug 1915. She was baptized on 20 Nov 1915 in St. Patrick's Cathedral and Confirmed in St. Patrick's on 2 Jul 1922. Her parents were Carlos and Laura Alvarez. Her Godmother was Mathilda Gutierrez and her Confirmation sponsor was Amerinda Torres. At an early age, my mother was placed in the Ursuline Convent School where she was raised by the nuns. The story she heard was that her mother died young and her father couldn't take care of her. He placed her in the school and paid tuition for several years when it stopped. Instead of putting her up for adoption, the nuns raised her. My mother died in 1993 and either didn't know anything or she just didn't want to talk about her past. The Ursuline school does not have any records of the early years. They were eaten by worms. I went through the Barbados civil registers on births, baptisms and burials, but could find no record of my mother's birth. In fact, I didn't see any Hispanic names in any of the other records. I was hoping to find her birth in the registers which might point out where her parents were born.  The name of her Confirmation sponsor - Amerinda intrigues me. Could that name have a connection with the Amerindians, the indigenous peoples of Guyana? I know that sounds far fetched; however, there were a lot of connections between Barbados and British Guyana. In fact, the motherhouse of the nuns were iin Georgetown. Any information would be helpful.

My name is Leonard Torres,
 I went through some records and found the following.  I could not beyond Antonio Torres but based on my DNA sequence I may be a descended of the Cristobal de Torres lineage.  All the Torres that match thus far trace to Cristobal via Marcial de Torres so if your connection goes to Cristobal via a different route this will be excellent.
