Looking for descendants of the Arce family, pre-1800, in Sinaloa. Two Arce brothers went to Baja California as soldiers mid-1700s. Their father is Francisco Pereda y Arce and mother is given as Rosa Lopez. Hoping to locate male Arces to possibly test for the Y signature but would like to find any one who might have descended from the Arce family that stayed on the mainland instead of going to Baja or Alta California.
Also interested in whether the Arce surname is a shortened version of the name Arceo.
