  1. Dr. Ellen Fernandez-Sacco:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for taking the time out of your busy schedule to provide this education that is so greatly needed among beginners and seasoned genealogists who wish to learn more about Puerto Rican/Caribbean genealogy and who wish to preserve our family history….and the memory of abuelita and our bisabuelos.

    Saludos,
