Help finding relatives, 1900 and before...
Posted by: C. (ID *****0558) Date: November 21, 2012 at 06:33:43

Can someone point me to some sources for finding my Puerto Rican family? They did not immigrate through Ellis island because they went from Puerto Rico directly to the territory of Hawaii (before it was a state). I do not speak Spanish, so I may need to have a friend translate or write letters for me, but I don't know where to start.

This is what I know about my grandmother's grandparents:

Jose Antone & Juana (maiden name Perez) Belasco, b. 1861 & 1875 - immigrated to Hawaii in 1901 with at least 4 children (John, Rosie, Raymond, and Ronaldo) from Adjuntas, Puerto Rico.

Esteban & Maria (maiden name Nunez) Feliciano, b. 1875 & 1880 - immigrated sometime before 1905 from Puerto Rico, exact location unknown. No children came with them from Puerto Rico, as far as I know.
