KRISTI; sorry it took me so long to aknowledge the info you are sharing with me. As you probably figured by now that I am a new resident in San Diego(less than four years), I do find helpful the names that you posted in your reply. The trick part will be to establish a connection with my relatives from Baja Mexico. I guess this is the start of my data-base for theVillarino surname.Once again, thank you. Pablo Villarino.
