    Hi Moises! Do you have the parents of this Blas de la Garza? I have two distinct men by the same name in my tree from my husband’s line, and it appears that the match would be my husband’s 11th great grand uncle. His parents were Marcos Alonso de la Garza and Juana Quintanilla Trevino. Is that a match?
