Mia--I am absolutely certain that we are related. My great-grandparents also were Domitilia Aubel and Hipolito Gonzales, both from New Mexico. My grandfather was Bernardo Aubel Gonzales, as Ivan mentioned in one of his posts (descendent of Domitilia and Hipolito). I have met Domitilia and Lola (and possibly other siblings, I just need my memory jogged).
i am very motivated to find more information about Hipolito Gonzales and Teresa Chavez, who Mr Ivan Baros mentions. I think they very well could be great-great-grandparents. But i am very unfamiliar with how to go about this.
i know that i have many cousins in Los Angelels and Southern CA (I am from Northern CA--Sacramento, originally). I remember meeting one of my mother's cousins, Peggy (that would be Bernardo's niece) in LA. i think her husband's name was Howard (don't remember last name). Do you know her?
You began this query 11 years ago, so it seems the site doesn't get a whole lot of attention. If you see this, i am very open to sharing my contact info with you. Meanwhile, wish me luck in finding more about our ancestors!
