The mission of Somos Primos is to promote a better understanding of the important global contributions of Spain in exploring and mapping the globe.
Our ancestors were among the first Europeans to successfully settle and establish families in the wilderness of the Americas and all over the world.
D Dorinda Moreno Rafael Ojeda ngel Custodio Rebollo Tony Santiago John P. One can watch the story of me and my dad standing at the projects on a special TV documentary scheduled to come out, April, 2017, concerning the 50th anniversary of the construction of Lincoln Center for the performing arts.
After three years of planning and preparation, the Cesar Chavez Monument in Riverside, California was unveiled, on June 8, 2015 at the intersection of Main and University streets. I believe it will be with the Tribeca Film Festival.The maquette, the statue's preliminary model, will be placed in the office of the Department of Agriculture in Washington, DC.

It tells the story of the many families living in tenement buildings, across the street and a little farther north from the Amsterdam Housing Projects. Only recently did I become aware of the fact that probably many of my ancestors and relatives came to California from New Mexico. One was about the gentleman who wrote about New Mexico.this area was once known as "San Juan Hill", and I am not talking about Cuba in the Spanish American war of 1898.
It's been written that it got its name because of the Black Americans who fought in Cuba's San Juan Hill. Getting back to Lincoln Center, thousands of people were forced to leave their homes and relocate elsewhere. My family was forced to relocate to the South Bronx in 1958. I have tried to encourage others i know to submit their stories to Somos Primos, be they Latinos or not. I do not wish to share info with the public until I have an opportunity to run all the info through a proper person who does genealogy. And that New Mexico was founded by our Jewish ancestors (Romeros, etc.), and then connecting the Trujillo family and others to the Agua Mansa monument in Riverside/San Bernardino, California. Then you put me in touch with Aurora Murillo Moreno of Stockton, CA. I added Aurora to my Ruiz/Romero family tree with in all due respect to her family (long story here--needs to be off the record). I work on my family tree often and have discovered fantastic information about my ancestors--this is provided that I have added all the correct information about ancestors. Thank you, Mimi for all you have done in helping so many of us tell our stories. My tree shows my family connections to many Early Californio families--Santiago Arguello, Francisco Ortega, Pacheco, Carrillo, Lopez and more Lopez, Trastamara, Tudor, Queen Isabella of Spain, and King Ferdinand of Spain, etc. I urge everyone to continue working on their family trees--the rewards are exciting and wonderful.It appears that Lancho does have a presence in the United States on the East coast, the north. Estimada amiga Mimi, Muchas gracias por incluirme en la difusin de su magnfica publicacin.
