My name is Miguel Aleman and I am the son of Ernesto Aleman.As far as I know, my dad was married to a lady by the last name of Novoa and had 3 kids.Juan, Santiago and Adolfo.He had other children out of wedlock of whom i know little about.I know there was a girl by the name of Juana Aleman.Then he married my mother.He had 2 sisters that i know of Esperanza and Santos.I would like to learn a bit more of the family since i hardly had time to get in touch with the distant relatives.We lived in Brownsville Texas but after he passed away we moved.He passed away back in 94-95 and was buried in Matamoros Tamaulipas.I know that he had family in Monterrey and in Arrambery Nuevo Leon i believe.It seems that the last name does derive from the word German and it ties to Oger Golant and his 9 captains.We even have a coat of arms.It is really common to have the Aleman name all over the old spanish colonized countries as the name would have spread and the spanish would have colonized all those areas.
