I just read one of your post about the coqui. I was not aware that puerto rico had a town called moca too. In DR in the cibao region there is a place called that..

I notice that Dominican rep, puerto rico and cuba have alot of name for there villages that are taino still and that all three of the island share. Very intersting.

Hola Rixturey:
Thank you for dropping in and commenting on the post I wrote concerning my thoughts on Taino ancestry, getentics and genealogy.
Within my own family tree my ancestor, Domingo de Jesus had married Isabel de Mena. Not too long ago a fellow genealogist sent me new data on that family. It turned out that Isabel and her son, Tomas de Mena owned slaves, Its hard for me to say but Domingo did too.
A record of a marriage between a slave whose name was Isabel de Mena and Domingo de Jesus was recorded in the San Juan Cathedral. The witness was Tomas de Mena de Jesus. Back in the 1600's through the late 1800's slaves were either given the family surname of those who owned them or took on the surname. For the record, I placed slaves as adopted children of Domingo, Tomas and Isabel with the notation of the source record and with the notation of their forced slavery.
Before the Spanish American war every parrish had two books that contained baptisms, deaths and marriages. One book was for the blancos and the other was kept for those who were listed, pardos y pardas. There were three distinct classes of Puerto Ricans,
Blancos, those who were considered Spanish - not mestizos.
Pardos, those who were Indian
Esclavos, those who were slaves imported from Africa.
Once the Americans got to PR the term, mulatto was applied to both black and indian descendants.
The word conversos was always applied to those of Sephardim - Jewish heritage.
The latter has been learned while researching my family tree.
Its also curious to note that Cuban parrishes also kept two sets of books that separated the white from the pardo.
Thanks again,
John Ayes, Ayesart

Actually both Inaru and Kasike Mucaro informed me of the passing of Grandfather Cyril and I was very saddened by the news. I now communicate with him in the spirit realm and ask for his guidance and advise. I will ask you to be our DC contact when we finalize the plans for the museum visit. I think that I would like for it to happen around the end of October but I have no firm plans yet. i will keep you informed.
