The Alatorre Surname Project
To gather geographic, ethnic and surname data pertaining to the Alatorre name specifically related to family patriarch Rosendo Alatorre (De La Torre) 1869-1955 who lived with his family in Los Angeles, CA. Additionally, to identify family relationships of heretofore unknown individuals who share the same lineage and/or surname. In a broader sense, all Alatorre surnames are encouraged to participate in DNA testing so that we may find our common ancesters and discover where we all began. The opportunity is finally there for us to see our past. Let's take it. Rosendo Alatorre (De La Torre) was born in the town of Sombrerete, state of Zacatecas, Republica de Mexico in 1869. He was deeply involved in the Mexican revolution in early 1900. When he crossed the border in 1914, after being defeated by the federalistas, he was captured by the US Army 8th Cavalry and was interned at Fort Bliss, Texas on January 10th, 1914. Later, he was transfered to Fort Wingate, New Mexico. His family waited for him in the zona Chamisal, El Paso, Texas and in 1928 the whole family moved to Los Angeles, CA where he had many grandchildren and great- grandchildren. A few of his grandchildren are working on this project.
