Cuban Genealogy of Betancourt/Cespedes Family
Posted by: JoAnn Alvarez Webb (ID *****6123) Date: April 21, 2006 at 11:19:09

I am looking for information on the Betancourt family from Cuba. My great grandmother was Amparo Sula y Betancourt, She was born in Besiar(I am not sure of the spelling), France.

Her mother, my great-great grandmother was Eva Betancourt y Cespedes and she was born in Bayamo, Cuba. She lived in Spain with Salvador Sula and the family story is that he was writing against the king in favor of Cuba. The king was going to have him killed. So he took his pregnant wife, Eva, over the Pyranees,to the French side where she had Family (Ursula) and that is where she gave birth to my great grandmother.

The next female was Ursula Betancourt who I believe was also born in France. I would love to have Eva Betancourt's birth certificate. Anyone know how to get information from Cuba?

If anyone recognizes any of these people plese let me know. We are also supposed to be related to Manual Cespedes, but with Cubans you can never tell. They are fantastic storytellers but sometimes the stories are more fantasy than fact. I myself am Cuban so I know this can happen.

Thanks for any info.
