I created this website in order to share some of my ancestral findings with
anyone who may show an interest in the Alvarado & Galvan surname or my wife's surname
Salinas & Contreras. Please take a look at my "personal stories" below. Click
I reside in San Antonio, Texas, my parents are Anastacio Galvan Sr. (1935-1986) and
Aurora Alvarado (1939-). I started working on my own family tree, when I met some
family during my grandmother’s funeral April 6, 2009. I was writing down their names
when I realized that I did not know them. So I decided to make it a point to meet
them before I leave this world.
I have included both sides of our family members. You can find information by looking
in our parents/grandparent’s bible. If you find something please share it with us.
Already I have met many extended family members as I progressed in my search. My wife
and I have met many family member’s right here in San Antonio, Texas. I was able
to find my aunt (Ernestina Alvarado) that died in 1969. She is buried in Austin behind
at an abandoned school cemetery. We also found another aunt (Carman Alvarado) which
died at the age of 6 month old. The cemetery address is 11408 Leopard St. in Corpus Christi,
On the Alvarado side I am a descendant of Genaro (1867-1941) who was in charge of the
Tex-Mex railroad in Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Leon, Mexico. I was told that we are of
German descendants. This is a story from my Uncle Fernando Alvarado and Cousin Jose
I recently was told (Aug 13,2011) by Carlos Alvarado son of Raul Alvarado that GGGrandfather
Genaro Alvarado real last name was Muller or Miller. The story was started in the 1880 when the
Muller family was traveling from the East coast to the West. On the way they were attack by
native Indians. His whole family was killed and he was captive. He ran away and traveled to
Laredo where his was adopted by a wealthy family called Alvarado. I have not confirmed this yet
but I need help in this matter.
I want to thank Jose "El Cucuy" Alvarado, Frank & Elvira Medrano, Alicia Charo, Regina Pina,
Antonio Gutierrez, Rosa Marta Pina, and Fernando Alvarado for their help in putting
all this data together. We still need more of your information.
I dedicate this site to you my family and all future family members. Remember that
life is what you make of it! So do all you can do!
