Sources of Resources for Research on Puerto Rico & Spain & name PEREZ #latinamerica
from my research I received a very interesting request >from a youngwoman trying to identify more about her family >from Puerto Rico &
Spain. What I have assessed is that they were landowners, financially
comfortable for Puerto Rico, and based there for many, many
generations. As with all of us, there are family mysteries.
I am trying to help her get started but am hindered by the fact that
my knowledge base is mainly Ukraine/Austro-Hungarian Empire.
We would be very grateful for any suggestions/directions at all about
doing research in Puerto Rico and/or Spain, Catholic and Jewish;
about getting at least the following kinds of records: Real Estate
Records, Business Records, Tax Records, Last Will & Testaments, Birth-
Death-Marriage (before that which is available through Mormons),
Baptismals (sp?), Town Histories .... Any other websites to look at?
Isn't the name "Perez" an old, prominent Jewish name?
