    Surnames have LANGUAGE origins; and they will tell you very little, if anything, about a person's ancestry or family history. The only way to know your family history and genealogy (who you are related to) is to do the research or pay someone to do it for you, which can get very expensive very quickly. (Professional genealogists charge on average US$20-$23+ an hour.) Start with yourself and work your way backwards, one generation at a time. Gather up your records, such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate (if applicable), newspaper articles and clippings regarding some of your accomplishments, journal entries, etc. Do the same for your parents, grandparents, etc You could take a DNA test, but such tests are meant to be a TOOL and not a substitute for proper genealogical research.

    "The Vargas surname is topographical in origin, indicating someone who lived on or near agricultural land that was flooded in winter; from vargas, the plural of varga. In different parts of Spain the term varga also had other various meanings, including a "steep hillside" or a "straw- or thatch-roofed hut."

    All surnames are words, all words come from language origins NOT countries, it is a Spanish lanaguge word so any couuntry in the world that heard, spoke or was influenced by the Spanish language..
