Hello my name is Stefani Limas, 17, and I'm from New Mexico. I was born and raised here. My grandfather, Ursulo Limas, was born in Mesilla Valley, but was raised in Torreon, Chihuahua, Mexico. My grandfathers father filed in the 1929-1930 Census under Benito Limas.
If somehow we are related there is a chance we might not be. My grandfathers brother, Abdono Limas, had many girlfriends in Mexico, all of which had children of their own. He gave them the Limas last name as an adopted name but refused to give the children that were really his the last name.
I came on this site as a school project and would like to find out where the last name Limas originated from and what it means. Does anybody have a clue?
