About Conner/Galas Homepage
When our grandson Zachary was about three, he stood very quietly looking at the  ancestral  pictures on our dining room wall and asked "Mammy, who I look like"?   And so our picture wall  of ‘old people’ became  our “Who I Look Like” wall, and eventually became the name for this  website.

My husband's ancestors came from Spain, France and the Basque Provinces via South America and  Mexico!  Those brave people were here to open up new territories for the Spanish Crown, others   came  for the same purpose as their counterparts on the East Coast - !!FREEDOM!! Freedom from  tyranny and the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labors and to pass on their successes to  their children and grandchildren.

By the time my Anglo ancestors arrived from Western Europe, England, Ireland and Scotland his  ancestors were well established in the “New World”.

Nearly every family line on our "Anglo Side" as well as a few of our Hispanic  Ancestors had one  or more sons who fought for their new found freedom in the Revolutionary War.  I have located some  of them, but not all.

As I searched the history of our ancestors I sometimes ran into very interesting ‘stories’ that  couldn’t be  proved or disproved as valid.  So, I took a bit of poetic license and fabricated  plausible stories based on the ‘facts’  we did know.  Those are interesting reading but are not to  be taken ‘absolutely’!

Another, but very important, part of my search was to uncover as many old photographs and  portraits as I could.  Some I found had been treasured and lovingly cared for by family.  Those  needed only to be copied, framed and displayed.   Some had been shoved into a closet and as out of  sight and mind as the people in the pictures themselves.  I discovered still others that had been  damaged or neglected to the point they were in danger of extinction.  Those were scanned into my  trusty scanner, and ‘photo shopped’ until they too were presentable for display.    Most of the  pictures are on display on this web site for your enjoyment.

I wish I could name each and every one of the terrific ‘cousins’ I met along this journey backwards  thru time.  But to all of you who have shared the excitement of uncovering an "elusive"  ancestor  with me   
 !!!!!MY HEARTFELT THANKS!!!!!!

A SPECIAL  THANK YOU  goes to two cousins,  MARIA DURAN MISENER and JEFFREY MEEKS.  Jeffrey has  been my friend, cousin and research ally with my Anglo ancestors for over 20 years.  Maria  and I  met a few years ago, and have become very close as we work together on Gus' (and her) Hispanic  lineage.  Without the two of you, I would be lost!!!
