Just a brief breakdown of the Alaniz branch that went to Michigan.This is my direct line descended from Antonio Alaniz and Petra Longoria to 1. Esteban Alaniz and Maria Antonia Salinas to 2. Zenon Alaniz and Francisca Perez to 3. Anastacio Alaniz and Eulalia Alanis to 4. Cipriano Alaniz and Petra Cantu to 5. Rosendo Alaniz (my grandfather). I have the names of each of their children and my great-grandmother Petra is still alive at 92.She is an excellent source of information.My great-grandfather just passed away last year.Genealogy is my grandfather's hobby and he has a lot of information as well that he has collected from Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
