About Our Family Research
My grandfather was Juan Antonio Dominguez Dominguez, born in Jayuya, PR on May 20, 1888. His parents were Fermin Dominguez Merlo and Juana Dominguez Amaral. During the San Ciriaco Hurrican in August 1899, Fermin and Juana (who was carrying a baby girl about 2 months old in her arms) went to find more secure shelter during the hurricane but were killed when what is believed to be a mudslide buried them alive. Fermin and Juana were survived by their children Juan, Herminio, Angel and a sister believed to be named Rosa.
