It's amazing , your knowledge of the family Marchena.
I would think that you are a family Marchena investigator.
Ok.I wonder where the Marchena's originaly come from. I know
that there has been a mix.There are in one family Marchena
light skinned and indian types. I also know that not all the Marchena's are family because some bought the name or some were misidentified mostly those living in Curacao.
I am from the real Marchena clan. My grandmother was Damiana
Francesca Marchena ( indian type). Her parents where Pieter
Jacobus Marchena and Maria Sablina Marchena.Who were these persons and there history? From my family tree Piar I know the history from Italy and Tenerife on. But I do not know that of Marchena. You told me they where also mulatto. I thought they where mistizo because they did not marry creols in that time. Only very very late 1900 they began to mix.I tried to get historical info of the Marchena family through the internet but I got few or no info. Maybe you know more? The oldest record we have is that of Adriaan Marchena married to Maria Asencion Marchena.
In any case many thanx for your info.
