Did you ever get a response to this query? I am looking for any Alaniz from Monterrey that might know about a migrant family from there who had 2 daughter, Yolanda and Linda, that ran away sometime between 1953 - 1956. they were in Maryland at the time. Linda is my mom. She had siblings, Hector, Rosa and Sammy (possibly others).
My grandmother's name I believe was Liberdad. Alaniz was the name of my mom and aunt's father or stepfather. Not sure. i am desperate for any information about their family as they are old now and well...you know. The other family name i remember them talking about as kids was Gutierrez. They never talked much about running away so most of what I recall is from when I was a kid and asked questions...any help is appreciated.
Oh yeah, at one point my grandfather may have owned or worked in a hardware store in San Antonio. He had another wife and family there. My mom - and aunt who stayed with him for awhile in Texas before returning to Monterrey - left shortly thereafter to the US following crops I guess.
They would have been around 13 and 16 when they ran away in Maryland.
