My grandfather, Francisco Jaun Alvarez/Castro, was born in Illa, Orense, Galacia, Spain on 23 Dec. 1904. He went to Cuba in 1919 to look for his father. He left Cuba for Philadelphia and finally settled in Pennsylvania. He has a half brother, Albert Silva/ Castro who lived in Brazil. He has a sister Maria in Illa. His mother was Rosa Marie (de) Castro who died in Illa. His father was (Joseph?) Alvarez (Paz?) who left Illa for Cuba around 1904. He died there before my grandfather got there, some type of dock accident. He had a brother who was also there. Looking for relatives and Manolita and Luis DeCuna.
