Re: Méndez in Bolivia in 1900 and before

My name is Claudia Grillo, born in Cochabamba, and I have been researching my family geneology also. I am not a Mendez, but my grandmother had cousins who were Mendez-Grilo. They were also am from Bolivia, in Cochabamba, and I discovered your family tree in my research. What is of particular interest to me is my
paternal grandmother's side of the family. Her name was Elina Urey Grillo, and her mother's name was Maria Grillo Ribas. I believe that Maria Grillo Ribas had a sister named Mercedes, and a brother named Rafael. The mother of Maria Grillo Ribas' was Candelaria Ribas, and her father was Geronimo
Grillo. They are all from Cochabamba or near Cochabamba. I see that you have a Geronimo Grilo in your tree, and it shows that he is the father of Mercedes. I think it might be the same Geronimo Grillo as in my family. I also see an Urey in your family
tree. The father of my grandmother, Elina Urey Grillo, was Rosendo Urey. He married Maria Grillo, and they had my grandmother, Elina Urey Grillo, and another daughter, Candelaria Urey Grillo.

Anyway, I would be interested in any
information you could provide about this. Unfortunately, my grandmother
died several years ago, so I am left with very little information to go
on from here.
Do you have any suggestions on how to gather more information for a beginner who is in another country?

Thank you for any help you can provide.
