I am helping my mother find her roots. My mother is now 72 and needs to find her roots and family. Her father is Ramon Perales, born 1909 in Laredo Texas, his parents are Gabriel Perales, born 2/27/1875 Matamoros,Mex and met Reyes MI(Maldonado) SALINAS, born 6/18/1878 San Diego, Texas. Her parents are Juan Salinas, born around 1852-1861 Mexico and married Juana (maiden name Maldonado)Salinas (born 1860 Mexico). Apparently they resided in Duval County Texas. So far I can only find Reyes MI Perales, which would be my great great grandmother. So far it appears that Gabriel and Reyes resided in Laredo texas and I have found record death records of both there in laredo Texas. I have come to a road block. I have had a great deal of help with tracking my Ramon Perales parents, but I have come to a dead end, I understand they came from SPAIN. but need help.
