Sartorius Family in Spain

Hello everyone.
According to the "Sartorius Family Archive Register" published in 1969 by Hugo Sartorius, the Spanish Branch of the Sartorius started in 1799 when Andreas Wilhelm Schneider/Sartorius emigrated to Cadiz (southern Spain) for reasons that still remain unclear.
Andreas Wilhelm Sartorius came from Marburg and was a direct descendent from the Sartorius from Darmstadt in the 16th-17th century (and third cousin from the Sartorius who emigrated to Mexico.
The Spanish Branch of the Sartorius has flourished and is well represented in Spain, and we are all very closely related since most of the 100+ members are, at most, secod degree cousins. The head of the Spanish Branch is Fernando Sartorius, count of San Luis.
The Sartorius are mostly concentrated in Madrid. However, there is one monument that any Sartorius visiting Sevilla should not miss, which is the Pantheon of illustriou persons of Seville (located ath the Museo de Bellas Artes) where JosÚ Luis Sartorius, 1st Count of San Luis is burried (n░47).
About 15 years ago, my cousins JosÚ Luis (n░121) and Mari Sol (son of JosÚ Luis Sartorius, n░95 in the Register) went to Mexico and met the relatives from the Mirador Hacienda.
I myself (n░ 138) was in contact in Geneva (Switzerland) with Monica Silberman (a Sartorius on 4th name) who was there during the visit and remembered the reunion of the two main Latin branches of the Sartorius.
My father Fernando (n░96) corresponded with Otto Sartorius in his youth in the preparartion of the Register.
One of my projects is to refresh, update and put online the Sartorius register, wich is a big piece of work, so any hints as to how get things done would be of use.
