My great grandfather was Florino E. Blanco(his name was later legally changed to Jack F. Blanco), born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Feb. 6, 1916. He married Pauline Nimmerfroh. He was born to a Costa Rican father and a Hungarian mother, Elizabeth Westergom(later Nagy). All I know about his father is that his last name was Blanco and he was born about 1873 in Costa Rica. I know nothing else about my great great grandfather's family or about him. I do know that he had quite a lot of siblings, at least 10 or so. He was the black sheep of the family and not exactly nice. My grandma, Florino's daughter, has a letter that Elizabeth sent to her husband's mom to get help from her, but she hasn't been able to find it. That letter would be immensely helpful, but unfortunately, she can't find it. So, I'm asking you if you know anything at all to please contact me. Thank you very much and I greatly appreciate it!!
