I am pleased to tell you that our family has done extensive research on the Tamez name and have come to find that it is of Jewish origin. Tamez is decended from Jacob of the Bible. Who name was Tam. (Simple and Pure)When Tam decendents left Israel they went into greece then Spain and seattled there. Adding on the EZ to their name making it Tamez. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella lead a revolt against the Jews forcing them into the Catholic religion, but the Tamez family stayed in Spain instead of leaving with the other Jewish families, who also had taken on Spanish surnames. The Tamez family hid their Jewisness for several years and eventually converted, the family did leave and immigrated to Mexico, settling in Nuevo Leon. This is where my family comes from in Mexico. Our Tamez family left Mexico and came to Texas and seattled there in about 1880. Our father has the Ladino accent and language and we have come to notice Jewish overtones in our family culture. We are in the process of DNA testing, but we know that it is seattled once and for all that all Tamez people carry the same bloodline. It has been recorded that we are all possibly decended from one man. We have found the Surname Tamez in Tel A Viv Israel. I hope this little bit of info helps you.

My G<G<Grandfather was born in 1862 in Matamoros, Mexico which is in the state of Tamaulipas. Have you come across any Tamez's that were born outside N.L. My GG grandfather's name was Rafael Tamez. Have not had much luck with church/public records.

Yes, the Tamez family goes all the way to Tamaulipas. Records can be found in Saltillo and Monterrey (Apodaca). Do you have any family that has said that they believe that the Tamez people are of Jewish origins? Our family strongly believe that this is so, and honor the Jewish traditions. We are Jews who believe in Jesus. We also believe that all Tamez people decend from one man and are all related by blood to each other.

Did you ever find the real origin of Tamez? Also, did you have DNA testing done?

I would like to see some more information on this. How do you know that they added an EZ to the last name. How do you know there are not some Tam's out there somewhere. I'm not trying to disagree there is just a lot of gaps in between stuff.

We are of Jewish descent because our Tamez family has had DNA testing and came back with the Saphardic and Ashkenazi markers. That is how we know and also the many Jewish ancestors we have traced back to Israel and Spain. no one will ever tell our family any thing different. and if they do we will only ignore it.

My father was from Tamaulipas also His name was Pedro Gonzalez Tamez. He had one brother Simon Tamez. I do not know the grandparents names. I also have heard that our last name originated in Israel. Do you know anyone who may have known him? He married Maria de Jesus Gallegos Vasquez(Basquez)in the 1940s
