Thanks for your last reply. Since then I've progressed in my Canales search and have found Blas's grandfather, Antonio Canales, to be the originator (Genearca) of this surname in northeast Mexico! Also two gererations of Blas' descendants and more information to come.
Please note my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Since postings on this board do not permit attachment of files, below is the tree outline. Note: I will bet that Blas' mother, Gertrudis Montemayor, is a descendant of Don Diego de Montemayor (founder of Monterrey, NL) - to whom I have two direct ancestor connections.
Stay in touch,
