I've been working on the Southern New Mexican Apodacas for a couple of years, although it's not the main surname that I'm working on.My Maiden name is Widner.Ignore the POLK, it's my ex-husband's last name.
My grandmother, Josephina Carrera, was the niece of Teotiste (Tilly) (Luchini) Apodaca.She was married to Santiago Sr.I have pictures.
I also have Santiago's father and mother's pictures and their names were Donaciano de la Encarnacion Apodaca and Mequelita Garcia Apodaca.I have the Apodaca family names back to 1700's from someone else who did the research.
Teotiste and Santiago had 10 boys.They started this family in the early 1900's.
If anyone is interested in pictures I'd be glad to share them. My e-mail is: email@example.com
