Tracing Grandmother's True Identity
My grandmother as we know her was Angela Savage (formerly Figueras) A birth certificate says she was born 19th June 1897 but on her marriage certificate and my mother's birth certificate she is Maria de los Angeles Figueras date of birth 21st June 1905. Her father was Angel Figueras and her mother was Maria Figueras (formerly Cantisano) born in La Linea. We appear to have drawn a blank even with Ancestry Records I know she was one of 10 possible more siblings. I do have some of their names Leccadia born 20th March 1892; Lucia born 5th May 1894 Ernesto born 20th June 1896 Leopoltho born 13th September 1900. My sister and I are planning to visit Gibraltar in September this year and hope that we can search through records but in the meantime if anyone can help we would be eternally grateful. I visited Gibraltar a few years ago and did meet Victor Figueras and his son (same name) and with Lydia. I have lost their address and other contact details but I do not Victor was in the fire service and had a cafe off Main Street perhaps someone knows of their whereabout too. Thank you, the only other information I have is that my grandmother married at the Kings Chapel in Gibraltar June 1928 and she returned with my month who was about 5 months in 1930 but for a holiday.

Bluett 1786
My ancestor William Bluett believed he was born 1786 in Gibraltar. I've found no proof so far but could a record be hidden somewhere?
