My name is Jose Farias. I am from California, born and raised here in the central valley near Fresno. The only thing i know is that my grandfather was names Jose Farias and died in Mexico. I know he was born in September of 1912. He married my grandmother Filomena Chavez and had i believe somewhere between 12-16 kids. im not really sure about the number. my grandmother had a sister who moved to the U.S. i believe it was some time around or after the great depression. and live in san fransisco for a portion of her life. her name was guadalupe chavez i might be incorrect about her last name. she may have gone by the of name lupe. my mom says that she is from el ranchito michoacan. i would like to know if anything from this sounds like you might now anything about them or some one that might. i hope to hear from someone soon. i will post more information as soon as i find out more. thank you for your time.
