Yes the last name Carlos also appears in my family tree.
From what I know the European ancestry of the Berumens is German. If you look at the family members now, you can see the German characteristics. I believe the original spelling was Bremen.
My grandfather used to tell us that there were two German brothers who went to Zacatecas for the silver mines (Zacatecasis still well know for its silver) there one of them married aSpanish woman with the last name of Valdez.
The Valdez Berumen families are very numerous it seems there were a lot of intermarriges but some did marry into other families like the Carlos family. My father has cousins whose last name is Carlos; they currently reside in Zacatecas and in Tijuana, Mx.
I hope this helps.
