  2. Hi Moises. My name is Mike Sheets and the past two years I have been doing genealogy work for my brother Eddie Martinez. Yours and his family crosses many times. Joseph de Alanis is his 7GGF. I know the marriage record of his parents reads as you have written, but it leads to a question. Maria de la Rosa. Is this not Maria de la Rosa Rodriguez de Montemayor Ayala daughter of Commandante Juan Francisco Rodriguez de Montemayor and Ramona de Ayala Orvalle? Am I wrong to add family surnames to keep the people straight.

    Thank you,

    Mike Sheets

    1. It could be but I have not come across a record indicating this. If so, then they would be first cousins and the marriage record does not indicate any relationship between them. If you have a source let me know, I would love to link her up to them.

    2. Ok after reading a few more comments i see I’m not the only one wondering why the use of only one surname as i find it useful to use both. I also understand why now only 1 surname was mentions since the parents have not been documented yet. Got it …

  3. Joseph Alanis & Maria Teresa Rodriguez de Montemayor are my 6th great grandparents. I will send you a descendants report shortly.

  4. Wow i feel old as i show him as my 4th great grandfather. 🙂 Just one question you only show one surname and i was wondering if i could confirm Miguel Alanis Sanchez & Maria de la Rosa Rodriguez de Montemayor as full surnames. My grandmother was an Alanis.
