We have got to get together over th family tree. I have gotten back to 1833 (approx). This is the date the Menas came to the New World. It makes sense that this would be the time since it falls into the time frame of the Meternick Solution in Spain (in short, throw out the possible trouble makers, etc.) I have names of wives and husbands and I have some pictures.
I also have dates of birth and death for a great many of the family. Hopeing to hear from you.
