There are few people with this surname, I think that probably there aren't
Zozaias in the Basque Country today
Ines Zozaya-Geist sends the following comment:
My father was a Zozaya that lived in U.S. from 1955-1997 (passed away
this June). Several of his siblings are still alive and living in
Pamplona, Navarra-Espana (Felix, Lorenzo, Antonio, Julianna, Romalda
Zozaya). Unfortunately I don't have more information other than my
Father's family lived in Arizu, (Aritzu) Spain (Navarra). So, don't
know if you need this information, but thought I'd share it.
