      Here's a little something I found about the surname
      Alvarado. Not sure it's what Dennis was looking for.
      The suffix -ado is used in the perfect tense and
      passive voice in Spanish verbs ending in -AR. Though I
      don't think "alvarar" is a real Spanish verb. Just a
      thought. Take care!

      Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its
      variants were: Among the earliest European explorers
      of the New World was Pedro de Alvarado, who voyaged to
      Hispaniola and to Cuba in 1510. From Cuba he journeyed
      to Mexico, and explored the Caribbean coastline. The
      Alvarado River in Mexico is named for him. Pedro
      became second-in-command to Hern�n Cort�s during the
      conquest of Mexico. Next, he travelled to Guatemala,
      where he founded the city of Antigua in 1524. He left
      a collection of his writings describing these
      adventures, that survive to this day. Another early
      explorer was Alfonso de Alvarado, who accompanied
      Pizarro to Peru. Later he continued on to the R�o de
      la Plata and was named Captain General of that region.
      Other early migrants to the New World bearing this
      surname included Juan de Alvarado, who sailed to
      America in 1511.
