  1. My great grandmothers maiden name was cavazos. My father tells me he has family history from Monterey,Mexico but has limited information on her side of the family. I’ve been researching family history for many years and would like to explore if there is a connection. How can I exchange or obtain additional information. Thank you

  2. Hola primo. I always find the information you provide very useful, especially in this case. Joaquin Cavazos was my 5th great grandfather. The detail can be found on JC Cavazos family tree on ancestry. I am a direct descendent of Juan Cavazos del Campo. My branch of the Cavazos came from Monterrey, China, General Teran, Reynosa, and Mercedes. Hopefully we can text in more detail later. Yours truly Jose Cavazos III.
