I am also from Venezuela specifically from Caracas. My name is Rafael Orta and I live with my family in NJ http://www.ortasoto.comhttp://www.ortasoto.com.My father use to said that in Venezuela there was only 2 families last name Orta, Ones from Caracas (us) and the others from La Guaira, I am not sure if that is true or not. My father last name is Roberto Orta Pacheco, he died in 1993. My grand father name was Rafael Orta Level and that is all I know from my last name. Through my live in Venezuela I knew 2 other Orta's. David Orta, I use to work with her at Oracle Venezuela and Gonzalo Gonzales Orta, they are the Orta's from la guaira that my father use to mention. I saw the album of pictures of your family, you have a beutiful family. I know also that at some point the family came from Spain, I don't know from where in Spain. It seams to me that my father use to know more about her mother's family (Pacheco) than about his father's family, probably because his father family was in Spain and he was born in Venezuela and his mother family was in Venezuela. I wish I could ask this questions to him. May be some day!. The name Oscar is very well sounded inside my family , I believe I have a cousing Named Oscar David Orta, and I think I met him when I was a child , but never knew more about him.
