I'm an Escalera. I live now in Colorado, but I grew up in California. My father is Justino Escalera. My Grandfather was Juan Escalera. I have a cousin living in the Seattle area who is also looking for Escaleras on-line. His name is Frank. I am not sure if we are cousins or not (I can only think of one cousin I have named michael). Let me know where you fit in the family tree.
