In His Own Words:

The Villarreal surname is a Noble and very old surname its lineage is very well extended throughout the entire Iberian Peninsula. There are several different casas solares in Aragon, Castilla, Pais Vasco y La Rioja. There were only a handful of Villarreal families that entered the New World during and after the conquest. There is also a large concentration of this surname in Argentina. This web page is an attempt to document all of these men and women so that all with this surname can have a starting or ending point for your ancestral search. Y-DNA testing has helped us determine which family group we belong to. The most dominat family group is the Northern Mexico and Southwestern USA family. This area has the largest surname population even larger than Spain. This groups common ancestor is Diego de Villarreal. This family may be related to the Villarreal family from Mexico City, Guadalajara, Zacatecas, Saltilo, Durango and Monterrey, Mexico. Only DNA testing of people from Mexico will verify this. – Danny Villarreal

      Hi Danny!
      I tried to share your awesome site with my mom, but my link is broken. Is the address still valid?
      (I am a Villarreal descendant, too! Nice to meet you!)

    Thanks, Danny, for sharing! I am going to study it carefully if I can get into it, because if I am correct, Margarita Villarreal Camargo was part of your family and
    she was a very dear friend of my mother and aunt, Esther Pena Rodriguez and
    Aurora Pena Gonzales, from the First Mexican Presbyterian Church on Jefferson
    Street. I will be great to read about this fine and well respected lady – the top secretary for Judge J.T. Canales.
