As someone wrote before, the Banda's must not have been very close! There seems to be Banda's everywhere but we don't seem to be related. I think we must be related because the name Banda is not as common as you might think,it is not like Garcia or Rodriguez. It must have originated somewhere.
I also don't know much about my fathers family history, because my father doesn't talk about it, I don't know why.
My father is Carlos Banda-Sepulveda, he had several brothers and sisters, I can't name them all. My grandfathers name was Concepcion Banda, and they are from michoacan Mexico.
I think I need to play more detective work and get some more names for you all. Any relatives out there?
