I live in the US. My mother Eladia Batista married an American soldier in Panama in 1966. She was born in Canazas- Veraguas between 1934 and 1944. In 1978 with her husband and 7 children traveled to Panama to see our relatives. We went to the interior to look for them but they could not be found. My mother was devastated! Im looking for any information I can get. There is a nephew I believe we met who took us to the interior that year by the name of Carlos. He was approximately 16 at the time in 1978. My moms mothers name was Tomasa Batista. Her grandparents were Ludovina Sanchez and Gil Batista. I believe a relative is also Sabino Batista and a twin sister named Ocolina- but I dont know the spelling.There is also a sister named Felicia and more siblings that lived on the ranch . Her fathers name I believe is Rafael.
