  1. I saw the newsletter about marriage of “Antonio Lopez Prieto and Maria Rodriguez de Montemayor ” and I knew it rang a bell. I looked it up in my family genealogy and sure enough. Maria is my 9G-grandfather’s sister. My Great G-pa’s name was Mateo and married Leonor Fernandez.
    I have gone back all the way to 1300’s Spain/Portugal/England on my dad’s side and 1300’s Spain on my mom’s side.
    My Mom’s (Agustin) 8th grandfather’s wife (Maria) is my dad’s (Manuel) 8th grandfather’s sister.

    1. Nice to meet you prima, thanks for sharing. Have you been able to find documents in Spain. I have yet to try and find one from there. All I have are secondary sources when it comes to the old world.
