Introduction (Reynoso, Renteria, and Zermeno families)

By Lee Ingram - Posted on 13 September 2022

Hi All, I have been a member here since 2016, with Martin Renteria noted in the records of my wife, Judith Martinez, with her Martinez family very well established and recorded in the Coahuila and Nuevo Leon areas of Mexico. Martin Renteria settled in the Llerena and Sombrete regions of Zacatecas, where he died in 1610. My link to Martin Renteria is via daughter Mayor Renteria, who also settled in the Nuevo Leon area, and ties back to the Martinez family through many other Nuevo Leon/Coahuila surnames.

My interest in this website came about when performing some research for the Reynoso family while living in Phoenix, Arizona. Our families both had moved from Globe, Arizona (a mining town) to Phoenix, Arizona (about 70 miles west). While conducting the Reynoso research, I found that the Reynoso family also had ties to the Renteria family. Since then, I have started a Juchipila area website, which focuses around the Reynoso y Renteria families. If interested, the website is located at

My focus lately had been with restoring the existing website after it went down. It is also with maintaining the current Nuestrosranchos site. This is all a part of the effort of the tech group that was assembled when the site went down in 2021. The tech group is also in the process of upgrading the site to a newer version of software for future use. The existing website software is a bit dated (Support for the software ended in 2016). The new site and software are current (2022), and when approved by the tech group this site will be hosted at a different location.

My introduction today is on behalf of my Grandson, Paul Hernandez, who married Alejandra Zermeno Moreno earlier this year (2022). The Zermeno family is well established in the Jalisco region, and this family is traced back to several conquistadors (via the Zermeno and Brambila) surnames.

This branch of the Zermeno family was listed early in Lagos and surrounding areas, but eventually settled in Juchitlan, Jalisco, Mexico and Union de Tula, Jalisco Mexico. I have included a file in the Members Files Area listed under Zermeno, Alejandra, with her pedigree chart through several generations.

I appreciate all the efforts of the membership over the many years this website has been in operation. The wealth of information that has been shared among the membership has helped to break down many genealogy brick walls. Many Thanks,
