I've always wanted to trace this so here's the bit of the puzzle that I know about.

I'm Jose Durazo Jr., born in Douglas, AZ in 1971

My dad is Jose Durazo, born in Douglas, AZ in 1947.
(he has a brother Armando)

My grandfather's name was Eustaquio Durazo, born in Tombstone, AZ in 1925.
Eustaquio had 5 siblings: Maria, Emma (spelling might be incorrect), Manuel, Ernesto, and one whose name I don't know but whose nickname was "Melita".

My great grandfather's name was also Eustaquio Durazo. His wife was Onesima Coronado. I'm not sure where they were born, but probably somewhere in the state of Sonora, Mexico.

Can anyone fill in more details either branching out or up from this part of the tree? Is anyone related to some of the people I've mentioned?

Hi i live in Sonora Mexico, and my mother is call Maria Provencio Durazo, and in her family all have the last name Durazo, all of her family and my family to live in a small town called Granados, Sonora, Mexico...(i write in sapnish because im not write in english well ok)

Como te comentaba la mayoria de los parientes de mi madre se apellidan Durazo y de echo la mayoria de la gente de su pueblo Granados se apellida de la misma forma, seria interesante compartir puntos de vista acerca del tema, siquieres puedes consultar la historia del pueblo de Granados Sonora, se cree que los fundadores del pueblo desendian de una raza Italiano-Albanesa de los Durazzo o Durazzi....y la verdad que Granados es Hermoso...ojala te sirva este comentario y Gracias

Por cierto yo vivo en Hermosillo Sonora Mexico

Merci pour votre réponse. Il semble que la famille a Durazzi dispersés partout dans le monde. Mon côté de la famille est arrivée au Mexique, avec d'autres colons européens vers 1840 et a créé un village. Il est intéressant de noter que l'un des autres familles européennes pour y arriver est d'ascendance anglaise supposée. Selon l'histoire de ma famille, nous descendons de l'Italie et je suis donc deviner que nous mai ont un ancêtre commun. Aussi, en allant plus loin, nous avons des racines en Albanie, en savez-vous quoi que ce soit concernant ce?

Merci pour votre temps, j'espère que mon français n'est pas trop terrible.

Surnames: Durazzi
My grandmother's maiden name is Durazzi. Her father was giuseppe, his father Allesandro. Allesandro was married to elisabetta chiappa of roncitelli in ancona italy, they had 3 other boys i know of besides my ggrandfather: vinnaco and pacifico (twins?) Born 1874, and Rafaoli. My great grandfather Giuseppe was born 1878. He came to america several times to work before settling down in Phillipsburg NJ where he owned a small grocery. Prior to that he had worked in the foundry in phillipsburg, and had worked on the transcontinental railroad, reaching as far as Alberta. We do not know much else about his family, i think they were not on good terms because he did not see them as being responsible with the money he sent and that they were not improving themselves. It might have been his 6th trip back when he decided he was in his 30s and needed to start a family of his own. Coincidentally, there was one other Durazzi family in our town but my grandmother said we weren't related though it could have just been estranged family, they were from same town in Italy too! My grandmother did the ancestry test so would love to see if anyone comes up a match to her on here. One more thing, my nanna makes sauce just like her dad did and she said he came from Bologna, but i can't find records of that or if he had just gone there from senigallia for work. Would love to find more on Durazzi from marche region.

The last name itself can refer to the albanian Durres, port city on Adriatic sea, Druze religion, the fruit known as the peach, or an arabic word for tailor or seamster. Heard a story that our ancestors may have had name changed in italy from durazzo to durazzi, but it could have bean durazno.
