Hi. My name is Dr.Edgar Zarate I am from Manila Philippines. There are only a few families here that I know of with this surname.I know my great grandfather was a soldier of the U.S. Army who came here during the 1st world war. He was from Mexico, they say. I don't know his first name. Maybe any of the Zarate's fr. Mexico would know. I would appreciate any information. Its good to see a whole lot of internet sites bearing our surname!
