The Acha surname has its origins in the spanish basque country, north of Spain next to the french border. As a matter of fact,it is linked to a town called Llodio in the Alava province. My great grandfather was born in the Basque Country in Spain, he was a military and he served in Puerto Rico during the American-Spanish war of 1898. From there he movedto the Canary Islands, also in Spain, and he stayed there until he passed away. He had one son and three girls, the girls never married, so his son is my grand father, and he had twoo sons.
