Starting At The Beginning

Sanchez Family

I'll start at the beginning of my family's story on my mother's side.

Here is a quick view of the descendants of
Tomas Sanchez
or if you prefer,
the ancestors of Felisa Sanchez.

Let's start with my Nana, Felisa Sanchez.

She was born in San Blas, Sinaloa, Mexico in 1882
This information was on her funeral notice and also obtained from her daughter Celia.
So far I have been unsuccessful in finding the actual birth record at the Familysearch site.
I think the reason being that most people born in Mexico have more than one name and no one in my family remembers any other names for her.

Felisa married three times and was widowed three times.
The majority of the family I keep in touch with come from these 3 marriages.
One other contact is from a daughter of her brother, Tomas Sanchez.

Felisa had 4 sisters and 2 brothers. I know most about Tomas and Mercedes, but hardly anything about the others. As you can see I don't even have their birth dates.

So please if any of my family is reading this and have any little bit of information on these grand aunts and uncles - Please send me an email!

Just the other day I was talking to my sister, Rita and she said she remembered that Tia Delfina had blond hair.

Well I'll end for today as my Nana's story is a very long one!

Changing My Family Blog Into A Genealogy Blog

I've decided to try and post here some of the research I have been doing on my family's ancestors and all the other side branches.

It should be fun and interesting especially for all the cousins I have connected to on Facebook!

I have not figured out yet how to get all the trees and charts posted.
I know I can probably copy and paste a doc here, but I would really like to post some pedigree charts.

Happy New Year!

I wish everyone in my family a great 2009!

I'm updating and cleaning up this blog.

Deleting older posts and pics. I've got too many blogs and picture sharing sites and I need to consolidate.

Seems everyone is either on MySpace or Facebook. At least the younger generation in my family!

This might be a dead blog soon....
