About Alvarado & Galvan Family Tree
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 
on "Stories".
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!
