My sister Doris posted a message and i would just like to add something to it. Last year while visiting in Guadalajara i became aware of the Barba family reunion that they hold there every year. The organizer of the event claims there are over 20,ooo descendants from the original three brothers that came to mexico from Spain back in the 1500's. He has compiled a family tree that dates back 15 generations. I searhed my particular family and found out that we were from the 11th generation. I'm trying to find the website of this man for whoever is interested in more information. This is truely a goldmine of information for anyone who is interested in the Barba family tree. I will post the website as soon as I have the address.
