Marlene Escalante

My name Marlene Escalante and I am doing research on my Grandfather family. If anyone has any information please contact. Here are some names Victor , Manuel, Trinidad Escalante. Dolores Fimbres and her daughters Carmen and Santos Valencia ( Lopez). My great grandfather was Victor, my grandfather was Augustine and my father’s name was Trinidad. Now I know who my dad was named after. My grandfather came to Guadalupe CA in the 1940’s. Thank you!

Hi, I am looking for any information about my great grandmother. My grandmother has always told me that we were Apache. She was born in Glendale, Az. in 1927 her mothers name was Vicenta Moreno my grandmother Elvira Ovezo her father Cruz Obeso. each of them spelled it differently. I know that One of my uncles was born on a reservation but i dont know which one and they have since passed. we still have family in Arizona however i have no way to contact them and all the elders have since passed any help would be truly appreciated. Please help me find my Family.

I am 1/4 Apache. My paternal Grandmother was born on the San Carlos Reservation in 1897. Her name was MA-Che’ (Yawning Girl) My DNA tests have confirmed what I know that my native blood is a 100% match to both the White Mtn. and the Res. in Oklahoma. My Apache Great Grandfather was killed and my Great Grandmother married a Mexican man with the last name Morales. My Grandmother attended a Catholic social function in 1916 where the girls were allowed to do the traditional dances and this is where she met my Grandfather, Leo Estrada. I don’t know her clan name and I can’t find her birth record, only Bible records. The Genetic Lab says that I’m a close relative of the Palmer Family. If any one can help, please let me know.

Thank you for the Wonderful site. I am a full blooded Apache from AZ, my Children are 1/2 Apache & 1/2 Kiowa. And they enjoy looking at all the articles here, my eldest Mahtaun uses the site for articles in her school papers. My Son Eagleman enjoys the music & my youngest daughters: Moonlight, Rain and Sunshine Little Flower love dancing to the music as well. I use my children’s Native American name, they were given to them by there grandparents at birth. THANK YOU!

Hello everyone on the pow wow site. I started to get information on my family tree with my daughter and I need all the help I can get for everyone. My great grandfather was born in Sonora, Mexico under the name of Jose Jesus Valdez and spoke the Cochise language, I can’t remember what my mother said either my great grandfather or my great grandmother was Yaqui Indian, my mother died 34 years ago when I was young, what I need is to find out how I can find out if it was my great grandfather or my great grandmother or both that were Yaqui Indian. Can someone please help guide me in the right direction

I do know he was born in Bowie, AZ. Since I was small he’s
always told me that we were Yaqui Indian.

Thank You, Felix Talavera
