Hi there,

I am looking for any connections or records to my grandparents:

Jose Gonzalez Scotto, born Gibraltar, married Margarita Sanchez Fernandez, born Benadilid, Malaga dates unknown but definately before 1900.

They had my grandmother, Ana Gonzalez Sanchez, born 1900 Gibraltar who (I think) had at least two sisters.

Ana married Jesus Valdivia de Haro from Guadix Granada (his father ? Valdivia Medialdea and mother Manuela de Haro Cueva, both from Guadix, Granada)in the 1920s. They had a son (my father), Jesus Valdivia Gonzalez, born 1926 in Larache. They lived in Larache or Tangiers. My grandfather died when my father was a small baby. I think my nan or some other family relative had a sweet shop in either Larache or Tangiers in the 1920s/1930s.

My grandmother, Ana, then married Jose Balsamo Chacon who was born in Tangiers (father Cayetano Balsamo, born Bora and mother Josefa Chacon, born Marbella) in 1942 and they were evacuated from Gibraltar and moved to the UK. I understand Jose Balsamo Chacon then returned to Gibraltar but died?

I am looking for any possible relatives or records.

Thanks for your help
