I have done a lot of research in the past few days, I want to narrow things down before I leave the country. I have found that my grandfather Alberto SAENZ de TEJADA was the son of Benito (SdT) and Gregoria GONZALES. Benito was son of Juan (SdT) and Maria MUELLA. My great & great-greats were all from a little town called Torrecilla en Cameros and had emigrated to Bilbao. My aunt (Sylvia Flanningan y SdT) had a birth and birth/death cetificate giving all of this info, even the street where they lived "Calle de Hernani".
My great Aunt was Maria, who died in Bilbao in the same rest home as my grandfather. Thier brother Alejandro married a Providencia ? from Puerto Rico and they had a daughter Olga m. a Gaspar FABRICANTE, no children. The most amazing thing is that I do not know what happened to Benito, but Gregoria died in Caibarien Cuba, where the family had a foundry with a pertner PENA. Wonder why they left Spain, married in the US & back to Spain? Some additional stones to turn after I get back. I will be calling the Spanish Consulate here, in order to find out more about the tiny town in the La Rioja province of Spain. This way I get the most for my time in Sp.
