Zalacain (zalakain, Zalazain)

In researching your friend's surname information, I noticed that our family name was not present. I'm sure our family would be very appreciative if it were added, as we would be delighted to contact any relatives here (in the states) or abroad. The information is as follows (taken from Diccionario Onomastico y Heraldico Vasco, Bilbao, 1970)

ZALACAIN (Zalakain, Zalazain)

1. Location of ancestral home: En Tolosa y en Albistur, segun Isasti en 1625.

2. Meaning of name: Segun L. M., sobre el pastizal (de ala, pasto, y gain, encima, con Z protet)

3. Proofs of nobility: En Tolosa (1707)

4. Description of coat of arms: Segun Cadenas y Vincent: en azur, un leon monstruoso, de oro, rampante.

Thank you for any assistance you or your service might be able to provide.

Best regards.

Brian Frederick-Zalacain
