Hello to all Topete's My name is Marianna I go by Mary..My father is Jorge Topete born guachinango jalisco at Rancho la colorado, my grand mother's name is Francisca Topete and my grandfather's name was Olibio Topete. Most my family on my fathers side still live there. There are alot Topetes in Nebraska, where I was born and raised, my father migrated there in the early 70's from Jalisco. I have 9 uncles and aunts, with many cousins all from the rancho that I mentioned earlier.
When I was a little girl my grandmother would tell stories of the ancient days of the aztec warriors and culture and therefore her strong faith in her religious practice. Although there is a strong catholic dominance, much of holstic and medicine practice originate from the aztec culture. I am doing alot of research, I plan to visit my grandmother this summer and record her stories that were passed on to her.
By the way I too am born again God Bless Please get back to me with questions or if you may know any of the names i mentioned earlier.
