"My NM. Family, Gerhardt, Valdez, Caviness, Gonzales, etc."
The Gerhardt's started in Baden, Germany and some settled in Ma. La. and NM.
The Caviness family are from France and settled in several different USA states. They were French Hugenots!
My Valdez family may have come from Spain and settled in NM, as far as I know. I really need help with this, if you can, please e-mail me.
My research for my Gonzales family, if correct, goes back to Portugal and also to NM. I would appreciate help with any or all of these. "God Bless you all" this is a wonderful site! June
