Hi,
Seeing many people interested in the Balkes, I became very interested in finding about my ancestors from Germany. Julio Balke was a very prosperous german who had different bussineses in Nicaragua. The dictator Anastasio Somoza took everything away from him, leaving my great grandfather without anything left. He had a daughter in Nicaragua Julia Almendares who he loved but who was outside of his marriage. Desperate he went back to Germany where he died. His son moved to Costa Rica. Very sad story. Any one has information about this man who never had the chance to recover his family again?
