I am looking for any information on the families of either of my great great grandparents on my grandmothers side. All the information I have is from census records and stories. Rafaela Lerdo de Tejada was born about 1853 and her parents were both from Spain. She married a Morris that was from England and had a son Guillermo 1880 in San Juan PR. She married a Rengifo at some point and had two daughters, Gloria in 1893 and Petronila in 1895 in San Juan PR. According to stories Rafaela was very well educated and was a nurse in the town in which she lived. There are no Lerdo de Tejada families in any of the records I can find in PR so she might have been born and raised in Spain. I am looking for any information on the Rengifo father and his family. Unfortunately PR is not inclined to release any birth records to me despite requesting them since I am the great great grand daughter and they do not fill genealogy requests. I am hoping someone can help me.
