Leal-Maestas-Robledo-Wagner Family History

Updated July 20, 2004

About Our Family Research


This is an ever evolving search for our combined family roots. A lot of the history that we had so far as been word of mouth passing down to the next generation and detailed research of New Mexico history done by our distant cousin Fray Angelico Chavez. There are still many resources that remain untapped by this search, such as the church records. One very fascinating aspect of the Leal and Robledo history was the Sephardic Jewish connection, that many of the immigrants to New Mexico were conversos, Leal is a Portuguese Sephardic name and Robledo was jailed in Mexico City for two years of the Inquisition, accused of being a Jew.

I would welcome any help with historical information and research.

Thanks,
Pat
