I was born in West Chicago, Illinois and now live in Aurora Illinois. I am the son of Jose A. Santillan, and my grandfather is Galdino Santillan, both from Araro,Michoacan Mexico. That is as far as I know about my family name... I have heard our name in many places, all over Mexico, in the U.S. and even in the Philipines so I wanted to find out where and when our family name originated. If anyone has any info about how I can start tracing our families name... drop me a message at santillanja@hotmail or santillanja@excite, Thanks.
