I am the one who posted the "wondering" message and came by this site again, by accident. I had forgotten which site I did this on and was glad to find it again.
Well, I do know more about where my grandparents came from. They (Gabriel and Maria Valadez) came to Kansas from Zacatecas. I also heard the name Anastacio on this forum discussion and my uncle Ernie, who lives in NJ, has that name as well.
Also, to the other Jennifer Marie Valadez, please write me back! I read your messages and am very excited to get to know you also!! I'm as excited to get to know all of you and cannot wait to see where this search gets me.
