I am looking for more information about my great grandmother, MERCEDES LOPEZ. This is the only information I have on her:
She had a baby with Miguel Ramirez (but I don't believe they ever got married) soon after he moved to New York, NY from Puerto Rico. Their daughter, Iraida B Ramirez (my grandmother) was born on October 3, (around) 1940. Mercedes left my grandmother soon after she was born, so my grandmother doesn't remember her at all. I also believe that Mercedes was of Puerto Rican descent but I'm not sure where she was born. Any information on her birth, death, possible marriage, parents, or ancestry would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you know of any search engines for citizens that lived in Puerto Rico or Mexico it would be very helpful.
