John, thanks for your reply. Yes, that was a typo error. I had no idea this was going to be so difficult.
I seems like everyday I find something about my Mother's Family. I have located many Family Tree's and her relatives are in them, but I can not locate my Mother's family information. Thanks.

Hi Ed,
Ok. so you listed: "My Great Grandmother: Juana Vale[n]zuela b-cerca 1868 (no further info)". Because you also listed: "Juan Francisco Bernal b-1737 Sin,Mx died San Francisco,Alta Ca." and "Francisco Xavier Valenzuela", I think that the "Juana Valenzuela" mentioned in the will of Maria Dolores Valenzuela posted at could be your ancestor.

Francisco Xavier Valenzuela, founder of Quiriego, Sonora, had a son named Jose Dolores Valenzuela by Ana Gertrudis Burboa. I know this because I obtained a copy of Francisco Xavier Valenzuela's will from a relative of mine. Jose Dolores Valenzuela married Ana Gertrudis Bernal. This information came from "Registro Civil del Quiriego, Marriages and Baptisms." Jose and Ana are the parents of María Dolores Valenzuela. María Dolores Valenzuela as noted above mentions "Juana Valenzuela" as one of her children in her will. And also mentions Jose and Ana as her parents. The will also states that Juana Valenzuela was not alive as of 1885. I have no further information about this "Juana".

Because the name "Juana Valenzuela" or "Maria Juana Valenzuela" is so common, this Juana could easily not be your ancestor. Unless we find other evidence regarding your great-grandmother that fits with what I've found. Take a look at the site and see what you think of the will.

Let me know if you find any other coroborating evidence.
Good luck,
Edward Romero

John, thanks again, but I'm unable to look at the information, due to Windows restrictions, they warn not to view. All the people you have mentioned are related to me. I do believe that I will never reach my goal until I contact a living relative in Sonora or Sinaloa. I have contacted someone in McAllen, Texas but funds were requested and I refused that. Who knows maybe someday I will change my mind, but my Mother's memories are not for sale. Thanks again, have a good day.
