Re: [Torrens List] Re: Torrens Genealogy Facebook Page.
This email comes at an opportune time. I have sent an odd email here and
there in the past trying to track down the origin of the Spanish Torrens
line, to determine if it's an independent occurrence or in fact somehow
descended from a more ancient branch. Just a couple of days ago I asked a
friend whose family had traced their Spanish genealogy back to El Cid
(certified by the Spanish government), to forward me the resources they
used in tracking their ancestors. I'm hoping during my spare time and with
a little work, to gain some greater insight into the origins of the Spanish
Torrenses. Incidentally my family moved to the US via Cuba in the 1960s,
and I live in San Francisco.
