The Zambrano Family started in “Lomalta, Jalisco Mexico” . Everardo Zambrano (my Great Grandfather) and Benito Zambrano moved from plantation to a pueblo called “El Volantine” He had 11 children, one being my grandfather.
My Grandfather got married to my grandmother and had 8 boys and 5 girls. My mother pull factor to cross the border was to live a better life. My mom met my dad in Los Angeles and moved to San Fernando where they got married.
My parents have lived in San Fernando from 1982 – 2006. My mom gave birth to my 3 younger brothers during that time period. Our push factor from San Fernando to Fontana was because of the end of my dads career industry.

1. The most interesting thing I learned was that my grandma spoke Swedish, I never knew that before and also that she at one point was a hair dressed because that’s what I want to do.2. Some interesting facts are that Grandpa Hartsell was in the Korean War and that my Gallardo grandparents lived in the same city when they were younger.
The common thing about the stories inour group is that each one relates backto an ancestry that traveled toAmerica. Looking at the bigpicture, none of us would be heretoday without the courage of our pastfamily members.
Taking the time out to learn about thefamilies history has given a sense ofpride in who we are and where wecome from. Having thisunderstanding makes us moreconscious and aware ofcultures, especially the ones to whichwe are related.
The group is connected to the classbecause we learn about the origin andgeography of different cultures.Eventually, everyone ended uptogether and has their own story andbackground, but each adds a personalcharacteristic to the group.
