Far as I know from my family the Gils were seven brother that get to Cuba in the 1800. The thing is this all the Gils in Cuba are the branching of this original seven brother that were originally from "Las Canarias", that is from the different islands "La Palma", Tenerife". This information is from one of the sons of one of this seven brother who my father found in the Hospital Saint Mary here in Hoboken New Jersey before he die from cancer in the prostate with about 96 years. People in my family had die very old so I have had the opportunity to learn about this things. So now you know what I know so far.
