Looking for info. on my paternal grandfather
« on: February 26, 2010, 04:09:58 PM »
Hello:
My name is Evelyn.  I live in NY.  I am trying to find some information on my paternal grandfather (i.e., photos, relatives, etc.).  The information I have on him so far is as follows:  His name was Pedro Santaella, he was born in 1900, and died at the age of 43 of TB.  He fathered children with my grandmother Constancia Ruiz, from Santurce, PR.  My mother's name was Jennie Santaella aka Juana Ruiz.  My grandfather went by the nickname Valentin.  He was orginally from Porta Tierra, San Juan. His occupation was that of a Merchant Seaman.  I appreciate any info. that may be provided (i.e., other sites, resources, etc.).

Thank You

I checked the military records from PR and could not indentify him.
What was his mother 's maiden name?

Since he was a merchant marine that was part of the Navy branch with no benefits. You can check with
with them and you may be able to get copies of his records.

Wish you luck. :D
