I am interested in your Candelaria line, my line thre me a screw ball when a gr gr gr grandfather decided to change name from Candelaria.I discovered a birth record that showed he was born to a Juan Candelaria...Ygncaio would have been born around 1800 so I placing Juan about 1780
Hard to find info, Juan married to Tomasa Sanchez (Teresa chaves name also noted on record I found).
Does this sound familiar...we have also been told we have Native blood (apache) Gr aunts and uncles sent to indian school.
From ATrisco area of NM..
would appreciate any thoughts
I searched the 1790 and 1802 census records in Virginia Langham Olmsted's "New Mexico Spanish & Mexican Colonial Censues 1790, 1823, 1845" and "Spanish and Mexican Censuses of New Mexico 1750 to 1830" for Atrisco and surrounding areas, including Alburquerque, to no avail. I also searched the Internet, and found Lydia Urbie's site that has a database that includes Ynacio Candelaria and his parents Juan Candelaria and Tomasa Sanchez. The following information was found on that database:
