Hey Mike, if you read the other post you will notice that its true that a lot of lomeli are in Guadalajara Mexico. What's more interesting besides being Italian decendent...my family that grandfather that lived there was not born there but actually France.He informed that although the lomeli last name has Italian back ground it also has decendents from France as well. It seems that the family had split to both countries. I know that there are more Lomeli's mainly in southern France hope this helps a little more. I've been trying to find more information about my great grandfather because he holds the key on our families last name but unfortunately my grandfather past away and never had the chance to give me more information. As for how we look we do have a tendency of being light skin and also colored eyed. Funny enough I was born with blond hair but eventually turned dark brown. Eyes definately hazel. I have also met another Lomeli in California with a similar background as mine that as had relatives in France.
