I have since been to Mexico and have had two Arriola Reunion's in San Bernardino CA. I have been contacted by Arriola cousin's related to my grand father. The last reunion 40 relatives came from Pennsylvania, and Mexico to meet us for the first time since 1907. This was a historical event for us since the family thought no family was alive in the USA. Our Arriola family here in the USA are 1,087, since my grand father passed in 1955, the family in Mexico didn't hear from the familia here in USA. In 2004 our families were reunited after 49 years! We keep in contact thanks to e-mails.
I have also had my father do a Y-DNA test through FamilyTreeDNA.com. My dad's results were haplogroup Rb1 from Western Eourope, Arriola is from the Basque people. I had a response from an Iker Arriola whose father was born in Spain where the Arriola's are from, Iker took the Y-DNA his results were: haplogroup Rb1 also and was one genetic marker off from a 25 marker test.In 24 generations there is a 97.72% that Iker and my Father,Jesus L. Arriola are related. Below is his first e-mail to me.
My name is Iker Arriola Peņalosa. I am Mexican and grandson by the line of my father, Salvador Arriola Barrenechea, of Basques; one of them being my grandfather Salvador Arriola Idarraga. My Arriola grandfather came to Mexico in the 1930's, he was a professional Basque-ball (Jai Alai) player for more than 30 years. He was from a village called Markina-Xemein, Vizcaya Biskaia) where we still have family which we visit with some frequency. In that region (the border between Vizcaya and Guipuzcoa -Gipuzkoa-) there are lots of Arriolas. Markina's webpage is:http://www.markina-xemein.com/index.asp?hizk=esp&atal=00 I have forwarded your communication to a cousin and uncle in Euskadi, who may find it interesting.
The track we have of the name comes, as you said from Alava, but also from the village (near Markina) of Itziar (town of Deba) not in Vizcaya, but in Guipuzcoa. In Mexico, where we do not have relatives, the common name is Arreola, which is really a Mexican linguistic deformation of the original Arriola. You may know that Arriola means in Basque "stone-forge" (arri = stone / piedra + ola = forge / fragua).
Please visit my web site there is information and links to more family sites, for any Arriola males who wish to take the Y-DNA Test, or e-mail me.
