Re: Settlements in Curaçao and St. Thomas #sephardic

  All the DELVALLEs were born in the “West Indies” which I know to be St. Thomas, having migrated from Curaçao except the LINDO family.  Delia (DEL VALLE) LINDO was born in the West Indies, but she married someone named S.J. LINDO, and 2 of his children (lotto and Hilda, above) were born in “U.S. Columbia” according to the 1900 census. Where is that? Is it Colombia? Panama? Curaçao?  The others (Albert and Olga) were born in Germany. As I said, a very interesting family!
 
 I found Delia and her daughter Olga on a ship in 1934.  Delia said her birthplace was Panama City, Panama.  Olga says Germany so we don't need to look further at her.  Otto and Hilda were born in the US part of the Canal Zone which was originally owned by Colombia...So I'd say that Otto and Hilda were born on US soil.  I don't know what that would do to their citizenship.
