My name is Alberto Zayas. I am from Mexico. I am not that familiar with the origins of the Zayas family in Mexico; as a matter of fact Zayas is not a common family name in Mexico. Most of my grandfather's family (Leopoldo Zayas) lives in the state of Veracruz. I know Zayas is a surname originally from Aragon, Spain and the first Zayas that came to the new world actually lived in Cuba.
