We need the town of origin since most records are located there and no where else save for some provincial records. =Peter=

Peter,,, I hope this reply gets back to you as I am not familiar quite yet with how this forum works. The only name of town I have is Ciro. I know that she was born into a not so wealty family,,,, possibly called a peasant. She had a sister...Elizabeth (bettina) and a brother Francisco and I do not know if any other siblings. She came to the states in 1909 and settled in the Chester, Wv area. thank you for your reply

I am not sure how this forum works or where to reply. The only name I have is Ciro. I know she was born into the peasant way of life. She had a brother Francisco and a sister Elizabeth. I do not know of any other siblings.
