This is great news!! thank you for the information. We are related then aren't we?!
This is great news at a great time. Tomorrow we're going to have a mini-Barela reunion with my cousins from Eduardo Barela,Jr. . He was my uncle who passed away many years ago. He is the son of Eduardo Sr. Henriquetta Barela of Las Cruces, NM. Eduardo Jr., or "Lupe" as they called him, would be Francisco Barela's brother.
Is Mark interested in locating relatives?;
There are three surviving Barelas from my grandparents Eduardo and Henriquetta. They are my mother Eva Barela-Moncada, my uncle Benjamin "Benny" Barela, and Amalia "Molly" Barela.
Do you know how to find out who and where my great grandparents came from? (the parents of Francisco Barela). Please keep in contact. I am so very excited about this.
