I've set up this website in the hopes that this will facilitate the gathering of family information. I have spent over 7 years researching the ancestry of all four of my grandparents. With the assistance of the resarch my mother had conducted years ago, I have been successful in gaining information on 5 generations of family members and ancestors.

Here's a short narrative of what I have so far:
I am the granddaughter of Aurora Avila and Luis (Epitacio) Ruan Aguilar and Jose Guadalupe Chavoya Prado and Juana Flores Yba˝ez. I grew up in National City California.

Aurora was born in Durango, Mexico, to Miguel Ibarra and Juanita Avila, she was born August 30, 1899 or 1900. She married Espirion Lozano in 1914, they had three children, Toribia, Espirion and Manuela, Espirion died and she later remarried and had 5 more chlidren. She married Luis (Epitacio) Ruan, son of Preciliano Ruan and Placida Aguilar, in 1925. Luis was born in 1898 in Nahuatzen, Michoacan, Mexico, as a young man he left Mexico ending up in California. He had 8 siblings, Porfirio, Jose, Eloisa, Leonarda, Jovita, Clotilde, Empimenio and Eulogio. Aurora and Luis had 6 children, Luis, Eloisa, Eugenio, Carlos, Rogelio and Dora Ruan. Carlos died as a child.

Jose Guadalupe Chavoya, was born 1905 and Juanita Flores, was born 1907, both from Jalisco Mexico. They married in 1926 in Jalisco, They had a total of 12 children of which 8 survived. Juanita was the daughter of Julia Yba˝ez and Miguel Flores. Jose Guadalupe was the son of Felipe Chavoya and Concepcion Prado. Their remaining children are Evangelina, Ana Maria, Eliacer, Estela, Edgardo, Edmundo and Efrain.

The family has extended far and wide, if you think you might have information our might be related, please contact me. Also we are in the early stages of planning a family reunion for sometime in 2005, you can contact me or check back here, details will be posted as available.
