Our father's name was Eusebio Monell Morales. Our mother's was Maria Magdalena Carambot Romero. Both of our parents were born on the beautiful island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. From Vieques they came to St. Croix, Virgin Islands to live after they had married. There they had eight children. Seven of these eight children are still alive. Three are living on St. Croix, Olga Milagros Gilbert, Maria Magdalena Ortiz, and Brunilda Camacho. Two are living in California, Hilda Luz Sankitts and Eusebio Monell, Jr. One is living in Boston Massachusetts, Ernesto Monell. And finally the baby of the family, Raphael Monell resides in Virginia. Our grandparent's names on father side were Dolores Morales and Antonio Monell. Our great-grandparents on father side were Dolores-(Canuta Robles & Raphael Morales)and Antonio-(Ricarda Rosa & Antonio Monell). Our grandparent's names on mother side were Etanisla Romero and Cayetano Carambot. Our great-grandparents on mother side were Etanisla-(Lucia Cordero & Gaspar Romero) and Cayetano-( Vicenta Torrens & Gabriel Carambot).
The seven children of Malu & Sebi have decided to get together and spend some time reminiscing on those good old days when our parents taught us what was good and what was bad. The date selected was July 21 through July 27, 2002. We are engaged in organizing activities where everyone (everyone!) can partake with no worries. All suggestions are greatly appreciated whenever possible. A fee of $10.00 a month has been set for each family member in order to defray some of the expenses. Please try to send your dues as soon as possible!! Each family is encouraged to invent some token that they would like to share and present to the other six members on their behalf ( we already have an idea on St.Croix, but unfortunately we cannot devulge it, SORRY!) But, work on it. Think of something that would remind everyone of their heritage, family, times together, etc. We are presently workiing on a design for our t-shirts which will include a family tree, so any information you know, and think we should know, please inform us. We are wide open for ideas and suggestions. We will try our best to update this information as we meet. Please remember to keep in touch and let us know how you feel about anything said. Bye for now. Love each and everyone of you.
