Found this website by accident. I read most of the postings which made me want to post a message. I am searching for anything and anyone regarding my biological paternal side of the family; More for my sons that are asking questions regarding their heritage and "mom who do I look like?"
My name is Laura Enriqueta Alonzo, daughter of Asencion Alonzo and Celia Sanchez. I was born in San Bentio, Texas. My mom never married my father and back in the early 60's it was a big no-no. She never gave me information and kept all her memories to herself to this date. It is like pulling teeth each time I want information from her. I finally gave up but now my heart aches to know where I come from.I have memories of meeting him twice age 4 and age 18. Met his mother once Fidela Castenada Alonzo who I heard through a friend she passed away last year or two years ago. Her husband was Jose or Asencion Sr. Alonzo. I heard they had one daughter name Emma and one Enriqueta plus a daughter who is a nun. Don't know much except there was a supposedly sister of mine name Velma in the Air Force. I was in the Army.
I always knew I was a Chicana but always felt connected to the Spheradic Jews/Ladino traditions.
Anyway if anyone has information please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
