Hi! I am posting this in case one of you might be related to me, and can either use this information or tell me more about my family.I haven't done a lot of research, but I know a few of my ancestors.
I. My name is Angel Velez-Sosa, and I was born in San Juan, PR in 1971, and currently live in Cambridge, MA.
II. My father is Angel Gilberto Velez-Diaz, and he was born in Gurabo, PR in 1945.
III. His father is Angel Bartolome Velez-Rivera, and he was born in Cayey, PR in 1916.
IV. His father was Hipolito Velez-Lopez, born around 1890 also in Cayey (I believe), and died in 1976; his mother was Franscisca Rivera-Lopez, Hipolito's first cousin, born around 1896.
V.a. Hipolito's father's name was Francisco Velez, and his mother's name was Victoriana Lopez.
V.b. Francisca's father was Juan Bartolome Rivera, and her mother was Maria del Pilar Lopez, the sister of Victoriana Lopez. Hipolito had 14 children from 4 women and Francisco had 5, so it is likely I'm related to some of you!Please respond if any of these names sound familiar to you.Yo puedo entender espanol, pero no lo puedo escribir muy bien (o rapido!), asi que si quiere responder en espanol, podre entender el mensaje.
