Hi there! My family is also from Michoacan. Us kids grew up in East Chicago though after my dad (Luis) and his brothers Chava, Fernando and Vidal moved there in 1950's to work in steel mills. By the way, my uncles have surnames all different. ... Zendejas, Sendejas and Cendejas. I believe it has something to do with what was going on at the time they crossed the broader.
Would love to know more about the family. Looks like we all come from same area. I would bet we are related.
