Hi miriam, i came across your listing because i too am investing villavicencios from ecuador. but i wasn't quite clear about your villavicencio connection. is it that your great grandfather was the illigitimate son of a villavicencio from/near ambato? and this was around 1890/1900? do you know any more? email me. i think that would probably be best. i used to live in nyc (grew up in elmhurst, queens) but am presently in paris.
