My mothers maiden name was Barela. Some of the siblings used Barella (with two Ls). My mother's father, Margarito "Tito" Aldrette Barela was born in 1906 in New Mexico. He died when my mother was 14 years old. I don't have the year but it is in the Social Security records. I want to know more about his family. He died before I was born. We don't know anything about his family.

I don't recognize the name, however.. the my husband's father was Antonio Alderette (not sure of the spelling) Barella.. and his dad was Frank. It is probably not an accident that they both have simular middle names.. it is probably a family name.
The family name was originally Varela. How things do get changed.

Thank you for replying. My mother told me how the name got changed over the years. Another thing, my uncle "Tony" died when I was 5. He was my mothers older brother. My mother said his name was Antonio or Anthony Barella. He used the double "L" in his last name. I cant find his death record. I know these people are connected. Do you have some specific questions you would like me to ask my mother? My mother's name is Virginia (no middle name) Barela (married name Romero) she is 66 yrs old and the middle child. Her mothers name was Carmen Martinez. She married Margarito "Tito" Barela. They were both born in New Mexico I believe Las Cruces. My mother says her father was younger than her mother. Also she knows that there was a family disagreement around her parents' marriage and they may have been disowned by the family due to the marriage. Not sure. My mothers sisters and brothers are Margaret, Josefina (Josie), Anthony (Tony), Joseph (Joe), Frank (Frankie) and her, Virginia (Virgie). There are a lot of Barela/Barella's here in Southern California.
Hope to hear from you again.

This Tony only passed away a couple of years ago so I don't think that it would be possible for it to be the same.. He was 84 when he died. His dad's name was Francisco..

Thea, I still think our Barella/Valencia connections are relavent. Francisco wa s married to Sarah and produced many offspring. We really should try to see where they are connected. Thanks, Connie

Im trying to trace info on the Barela/(Barella?) side of the family. Most of the names in the post sound familiar. Do you know of any family history in Walnut Grove/Sacremento, CA?
