I am searching for my paternal family. My fathers mother is Bertha Gurrola Soto. Her mother is Francisca Soto. I don't have much info, only more names. My father is Francisco Lopez Gurrola. Ring any bells?

My maternal grandfather's name was Francisco Gurrola, he had a sister who worked in Las Minas in the Mexican state of Coahuila, she past on some years ago...He was the oldest of a family of 13-18 people...details are sketchy but they had established themselves in Durango, Mexico. Their parents were of Moroccan-Spanish descent and were also Muslim, but were made to convert to Catholicism due to the Inquisition. They possessed a Royal Spanish seal that officiated their legal right to operate a bakery. They fled to Mexico from Spain/Morocco when the Inquisition got worse, only to find that in Mexico it was not very different. I believe they were Bedouin or of some nomadic tribe. My great-great-grandfather was from Fes, Morocco and his wife was of Spanish descent.
