I stumbled upon this posting when I was doing a search on Google regarding my last name, Alba.My grandfather's father immigrated to the U.S. from Jalisco, Mex. (I don't know which area) and settled in a small town near El Paso, TX.It was interesting to hear that there's a pattern of Albas that have come from Jalisco into the U.S. through El Paso.I have always been interested in finding my family's roots, but haven't done any heavy searching yet.I'm about to start gathering as many names as I can, which should give me a starting place.
I'll try to keep posting info here. . .I might find some relatives!
