Click on this link Ciudad Juárez (or alternatively click on the Our Towns tab from the Main Menu at the top of the page) and scroll down to the Mexico heading to check out the Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua page!  Ciudad Juárez is the largest city in the northern Mexican border state of Chihuahua and was the home to approximately ten generations of our Miranda and Vielma branches from approximately 1680 until 1904 when the last of our Vielma line moved permanently north of the Rio Grande to the United States.  Ciudad Juarez today may be more known for its concentration of factories (maquiladoras) and violence associated with drug cartels. but it is also a vibrant city with a proud history and claims as the originator of the margarita and the burrito.
