Mayra Natalie Zavala, San Diego, CA
Hello everyone I've been very interested in my surname lately my father's name is Vicente Zavala. All I know about him is that he comes from Nayarit, Mexico. Which by the way there's a place in Nayarit called "Zavala". From my research I manage to find out that we Zavalas' decent from Germany according to "house of names.com" In their research Germans when settling in the Americas they settled in Texas. My question from there was, how did the Zavala's end up in Mexico? After further research I found an article talking about the immigration of Germans to Mexico. Therefore there is a large population of German-Mexicans in Chihuahua, Mexico coincidently right next to Texas. I can imagine many from there spread out thru Mexico.
From what I'm told my father was a ladies man therefore my mother and him were separated my their 3rd year together. I have visited my fathers side of the family once before. They are located in Banning, California. If anybody knows anything about this family please let me know :)
