My mom didn't know her true family as a child in Arecibo, especially the Alicea family (father's side). Then she was sent to NY around 1956 to be raised by the lady (from Arecibo) I knew growing up as my grandmother. I initially did a search on ancestry.com with just my grandparents name that appear on my mom's birth certificate. So far this what I came up with, my grandfather Leopoldo Alicea, born abt 1918, had a younger sister (by 1 yr), named Juana Alicea. My grandfather is Alicea from his mom Victoria Alicea, born abt 1900, and whose father is Jose Alicea, born abt 1877, who also had other Alicea kids in the early 1900's, ie. Serafin, Monserrate, Maria, Juan, & Emilia. By the way my mom's name is also Victoria Alicea and has at least 1 brother she hasn't seen in over 30 yrs and heard of other siblings that are also Alicea. Thanks for the hope.
