The Vazquez family is the one I most identify with because this was the family I was around when growing up.
The Vazquez / Vázquez surname comes from the Basque region in Spain. The name means “son of Vasco” and has spelling variations as well as being related to similar surnames like Velez, Velasco, and Velazquez.
My Vazquez relatives come from Florida, Puerto Rico and the larger area of Manati, Puerto Rico. My research using FamilySearch.org has a few generations past my great grandfather. Vazquez is a common surname and in the area they lived, so I was happy to positively identify my Vazquez ancestors.
The Villamil surname is a place name from Asturias, Spain.
