I'm looking for help to find my grandfather's parents. He was born in Spain (1910), in La Caruna; I believe in Ferrol. He left home at 13. He had a few brothers and at least 1 sister. His wife, whom he met in NY, is also from Spain. Galicia as well. I know her parents names. Would like to find out more about her background too. Any advice on how I can track down my grandfather's farm, his parents, and their history? I see a bunch of FRAGUELA surnames in familysearch.com, in Caruna... Anyway, if you know whom I can ask fro help, or if you can help, please email me: solan46@hotmail.com. My name is matt.

I am trying to find out more about my great grandfather, Lisardo Nunez. Of Soto, Spain. Born in September 1892-3-or 4. May also go by Lisardo Raymond Nunez. When I search for Soto in Spain I find various results but no such area. He was a freedom fighter against Franco, I am told. And he left Spain and moved to NYC, USA. We don't know any of our Spain ancestors or relatives. Any help would be amazing.
