Event was great! Hope you were there.

I tried to visit with as many people as I could.  My table was
busy with on lookers many of them were descendants which made
me very happy.  I had plenty of material handouts for them to
take home.  I hope I will hear from some of them soon.

There were request like, "Where can I get a copy of the
Proclamation that was read that day?"  I am still looking into
that, as I have been away in Tuscan, AZ with family for 10days.
I know that many photos of the event were posted on Facebook.
Those of you that are on my friends should have seen some of

I have photos of the saving of the Casa Navarro back in 1960.
If anyone is interested in receiving one just write to me.

Get ready for an exciting year 2018

I can't believe it has been a year since I began my Navarro/Ruiz family blog.  I am happy to have this platform to share my passion with you.  I hope you have enjoyed my past post and look forward to more news about these two families as the year progresses.  I will let you know when I am planning a meeting at the library to you can come and be part of this learning experience.

I am so looking forward to all the celebrations that our city is planning for 2018!  The website is  It has a calendar which will help you see all that is going on that day.  The
celebration for this year started off with a big bang, with our New Years Eve celebration at Hemisphere Plaza in downtown San Antonio, Texas.  There was live entertainment and festivities, which started at 4 pm that day, and culminated with an amazing fireworks display.

The next celebration is February 24th, which will be our day to shine.  We begin the birthday celebration for Jose Antonio Navarro at 10 am at the Casa Navarro at 228 S. Laredo St.  The Corsican delegation will be part of these doings. I will be there at a table marked genealogy, right next door will be a membership table for our organization, the Friends of Casa Navarro.  Please come over and visit with me.  I will have some fabulous things to share with you.  This is the first year that a genealogical table will be at these festivities.  Here is your opportunity to ask those nagging questions or get some information you have always wondered about.

Your participation is welcomed, bring the family and a friend or two.

Looking at this past year, 2017

As the end of another year is days away, I reflect on my passion to share family history.  This blog has allowed me to share information and communication with all of you.  I has sharpened my resolve to continue searching and learning.

I have enjoyed meeting and talking with so many family members and friends, many of whom I have not spoken to in a very long time.

The meetings I had this past year at the Library were well attended. Many of you were not only interested in these two families but also in your own family lines.  My plans for next year are already in the making.  If you can't attend any of these meetings perhaps you'd like to subscribe to my blog.

You'll find the subscribe button at the bottom of this page. 

The Casa Navarro will celebrate Jose Antonio Navarro's Birthday on the 24th of February in style.  

Please come and meet me, as I would love meeting you.
I look forward to our continued communication in 2018.
