The above statement by Hector lacks documentation.A most critical necessity for correct, valid and ACCEPTABLE genealogical analysis.
Most likely the statement above was fabricated "on the spot" to amuse Hector a foreigner who seemed gullible and all-accepting of the statement by the "profesor."Hector was not sophisticated nor knowledgeable about genealogy much less about information concerning his unusual surname.
What is bothersome is that the Spaniard, Armando DeLeon, passes himself off as a GENEALOGIST and a PROFESSOR. He gives as "proof" of his genealogical acumen the names Javier Enriquez SOTOLONGO, a spaniard with multiple EUROPEAN "servants"at a time in history when Spain's dominance and riches were at a low ebb. He adds to the unlikely stew, Shamil QUIRAJSHI, a poor arab with a large family and conflicts and intrigue with gypsies no less. This is most unprofessional and has the odor of an unbelievable URBAN LEGEND in its infancy. What a joke. They both must have been drinking. This does not make the spaniard bad or malicious but just uninformed and an unabashed creator of myth and legend.
I hope Hector can confront the "genealogist-professor" and in a friendly way "set him straight" since they have made prior arrangements to commiserate bringing another "genealogist" into the fray.
