So you know latin people use 2 "apellidos" (lastnames). We use as first the father last name, and second the mother last name. As so, my name is Axel E. Tavares BUJOSA.
I spoke largely with my mother before she died, as well with my only uncle (My mother´s brother as well my only aunt, that still alive, 2 weeks ago in santo Domingo), and they have narrated me that that my grandfather Juan Bujosa Alberti, borne in Palma de Mallorca left to Puerto Rico in 1870+, but finally he stablished in Santo Domingo here he married my grandmother. His brother(Nobody remember his name) came to santo Domingo but he left to Cuba, where he remained. He married and and had 3 children: 2 boys and one girl.Ocasionally they comunicated, but but my grandfather died on 1948 in santo Domingo. He also had a cousin that lived in san Pedro de Macori (Santo Domingo, but from him no body had much information. Yes, even do i live in Venezuela, the great mayority of my family live in Santo Domingo. I do know that the fellow who left to Cuba, one of his son is or was a Doctor (MD)supposely a Cardiologist.
Recently i made a contact with Mr. Jhon Bujosa who lived in USA, whose father was Francisco Bujosa, also came from Palma de Mayorca, in the middle of 1800. He stablished in Puerto Rico, in Lares. At the present time we are talking as with you; trying to find out our roots. I also know that in mayority of the Bujosa are in the Baleares Island, Spain. In general as it looks, the BUJOSA Name is not so extended as others, pe. MARTINEZ etc. I want to assure you, that the only reason i am doing this investigation is for familiar and sentimental reasons.
Please do your best, and try to find out the most information that you could get out fron your relatives.
