Hello Ana,
I am Noemi and I have been trying to get any information on my family. I am the granddaughter of Petrona Rios Pomales (RIVERA was her married name). She had 2 sisters and 2 brothers. I have a Great-Uncle, Candido Rios Pomales (my grandma's only living bro) who I believe lives in aguas buenas. (only went once to puerto rico and took a bus to San Jose)sorry I am not sure but I know he is still living.
Their parents names were Juan Rios and Fermina Pomales. Grandma told me that her mother (Fermina) was from Spain and that her father's family were from Guaraguao, Bayamon. I have talked to other family members and what little they remember is that Tio Candido said that he had land in Guaraguao, and that he had alot of cousins (Rios) living there.
Since I have no address for my great-Uncle I can not write to him or call him to try to get this information. I called to tried to get a copy of my grandmother's birth certificate in Aguas Buenas and they told me that I couldn't get a copy of it because I was too far down the blood line, that only a living sibling could get a copy of her birth certificate.
I explained to them that I lived in Jersey (now in Florida) and that I had a copy of my grandma's death certificate. But they said that only my great-uncle could do it or to just ask him. Needless to say, I would but I don't know his exact location and even if he remembers me. I saw him a couple of times when I was young.
Wow, sorry didn't mean to make this a long note. I would like to know if anyone knows about the Pomales family and the Rios family that lived or live in Guaragao, Bayamon.
I thank you in advance. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Noemi
