Mendoza Family Spain/Puerto Rico
Posted by: Barbara Burgos Date: December 13, 1998 at 16:29:55

I am looking for Mendoza's in Puerto Rico. I know they originated in Spain. That is where my great grandmother came from and she was a Mendoza. My grandmother says that the Mendoza's were land Barrons in Spain among other things. They were very wealthy. My great grandma married a field worker and was disowned. She an my great grandfather then travelled to Puerto Rico which is where my family is primarily from. My great grandmother was unable to handle living amongst the poor and apparently she committed suicide as a result of her family disowning her. I would like to find out more about the Mendoza's for my grandmother who has never known that side of her family.
