My name is Lanie Moniz, and I live on Guam, a US Territory.

My grandfather is ANACLETO MONIZ and I am desperately searching more information regarding his family. He was born in Hawaii(???)on July 4, 1905. I don't know his parents names.

My grandfather, ANACLETO MONIZ came to Guam, I belive back in the late 1940's to 1955. He had later met my grandmother Maria Sahagon and had my father Alandro (Alejandro) Moniz.

My parents are divorced and because of that I am unable to obtain sufficient information from my father regarding the MONIZ family. Other reason being, my grandfather later relocated to San Francisco, California (died in January 1978) and had left when my father when he was at a very young age.

However, my father was able to find him and obtain little information about my grandfathers family.

You mentioned that your grandfather had 13 siblings, are able to confirm my grandfathers name with your family? Also in Guam, everyone would ask where did MONIZ originate from or what nationality is MONIZ. Would you be able to give me the race/ nationality of the surname MONIZ?

Looking forward to a reply.
