My grandmother's dad on my mother's side came to Cuba from Islas Canarias by the end of last century. His name was Rafael Hernandez. According to my uncle, all the Hernandez from there are related because they all originated from a settler who was an envoy from the Spanish King and who happened to be also nobility. I do not know if this is a fact, but I am going to research it. Have you heard that story before? Do you know anybody in Canarias by that name? GRACIAS.
