Looking for the Alonso and Fernandez Family
Posted by: Doribel Fernandez (ID *****6831) Date: March 03, 2012 at 23:53:10

I'm trying to locate information regarding my fathers side of the family which I don't know much about. My father passed away in January of 2007.

My grandmothers name was Emilia Alonso. My understanding is that she was born in Tampa Florida. I'm not sure when or how she got to Miami. Her birthday if I remeber correctly was November 5th or November 3rd. If my calculation is correct her year of birth could of been 1890 or 1891.
She then married who I believe is my grandfather Claudio Fernandez. My grandfather died when my dad was young and was never really spoken of. I do believe that all of my dads sibilings were all from the same mother and father.

I don't know all the names of the siblings but I do know that my dad had a brother named Emilio and a sister named Virginia. There are a few other siblings but the names are not coming to me right now.

My father married my mom, Teresita Valdes in 1969. My mom was 20 yrs younger then my dad. In 1970 my mother came to the US and my dad was able to join her in the us in 1973.

My dad had a son prior to him marrying my mom and his name is Omar. I believe that he also fathered another son and 2 daughters before meeting my mom.

If someone can provided me any other information regarding my dad and his side of the family, I will be very greatful!

Also does anyone have any information on how to obtain a Cuban Birth Certificate?
