Author: Val-Cruz
Date: Thursday, May 24, 2001
Classification: Query
Surnames: Alanis

Pick up "The Census of 1790" by Willaim Marvin Mason at the Museum of Natural History. You will find, as I did that in 1781 Maximo was listed as a Indio, as time went by he was listed as a espanol. I have been working on our tree for 2 years and have over 700 names in my data base. I found the information in Mason's book to be true and complete. Books written before then left out the "race or color".
