Wow! I just found this site and am ecstatic to see other people with my last name searching for their identity. It's wonderful. I hope I can meet some of you!
My grandfather, Richard Basaldua,was from Yoakim (I hope that's spelled right) Texas and he was 3rd generation American. His grandfather came from Portugal. My grandfather told me my last name means, "Family from Bas"which is a town located in Portugal or Spain. I'm not sure which.
Please feel free to email me any time if you have any more firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks! And deep affection to all the Basalduas
