I agree with you, Manuel about cleaning up the trees.Until recently, we Australians cleaned up our trees to make sure that there were no convicts in them.When I revealeda convict ancestor, some branches would not talk to me.Their loss. I can see this also happening in noble families of spain who want to hide their moorish ancestry. I have read Eduardo's information on the possibile Visigothic ancestry of the Alderete,but the more I think of it, the more (moor??LOL) it sounds like a cover up. I am going to look for some information on these gothic princes....if it exists. CHeers.
