    1. Hi Matthew, I just now seeing your post. If you descend from the Betancourt that was started with Diego's son Rafael, then yes we are related. I believe I saw a post today in the group for Patillas. :)

  6. Hi Anna. I hope you can help with find what Boats, barges, yawls, dinghies or even a yagua "like my grandmother use to say" anything that arrive at Puerto Rico in the early 1800's. I will appreciate it very much. I bought the book "Los Emigrantes llegados a Puerto Rico Procedentes de Venezuela entre 1810-1848" and didn't find my 3x's great grandfather. Cosme Aguirre isn't on his content. Please Anna help me. Thank you and God bless!

    1. Hi Nereida,

      Yes I saw your post in the Facebook group and here. Unfortunately you purchased a book but the problem is that you should not buy books until you've exhausted all the free options first. There are books you can get on microfilm. I cannot recall your prior note but the name sounds very familiar. Have you gone through the Ponce church records yet? I saw the town you listed that he came from but it does not exist in Venezuela. I recommend reviewing documents you have first. Sometimes we capture information and start to remember it not in a full picture; our minds are funny characters. Unfortunately, until I complete the breakdown of Ponce, there are no specific church records I can recommend. Keep in mind that records could have been lost or it may require visiting the Archivos in San Juan. However, take a step back and sit down and review the records you do have and document the information in a notebook. I am hoping to have Ponce done within the next week or so. It will take time since there are 16 films involved that I need to breakdown into books.

    2. Thank you, Anna. Can you please let me know when you finish with the record from Ponce? I'll appreciate it. I will keep looking for Cosme but I really don't know where else to look anymore. I have checked on line for him but to no avail and this has taken me months and I have been searching for ships that landed in Puerto Rico but also there is the possibility that they went to Colombia or Brazil before they left for Puerto Rico. I have been thinking that due to the war or conflict that it was going on in Venezuela at that particular time, that maybe he emigrated with a different name or that he came with his family as a child. You are blessed for helping people to find their roots. Thank you again.
