About Our Family Research

Thanks to my Mother Martha, Uncle (Chapo)Eddie Martinez, Tia Chavela Garibay and Uncle Freddy Martinez for the beautiful pictures that were given to me to make this site special.

On July 30, 2006
We had our first "MARTINEZ FAMILY REUNION." It was in Thousand Oaks, California.
There were 6 Generations who attended.
It was a very emotional time for us all. Lots of kissing, crying, dancing and meeting new exteded family members.
2007 We had another Family Reunion. Within this time we lost 4 of our family members.
Please go to for lots more information on Martinez Family.
