  • Alvarez family Gibraltar

    Hi,

    I'm trying to find some information on the Alvarez family in Gibraltar. My great gran was Juana Figueras born 31/07/1923 and her mum was Luisa Alvarez. I've seen some records on the Gibraltar archive site but can't be certain I have the right family. Any help would be amazing. Thanks. Dean

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    We do have a few people on here with European/British commonwealth expertise, I personally have no knowledge in this area.

    It might be useful to post her date of birth and what other information you do know to be correct.

            I have checked Ancestry and can see that they have quite a few records on their card catalogue, but births are earlier than your G grandmother

                on the Gibraltan website it has a list of the evacuees, which I guess you have seen - Luisa and her mother living at 13 Lynchs Lane

                There is also Juana Alvarez at same address, would assume this to be her grandmother? age 75 born in 1865, but wouldn't know her maiden name.

                website doesn't seem to return just that address even though it lets me pick it

                  no idea who Amanda Mecaliff is - but she was also at same ship and I checked the same address

                  EDIT can see a number of people at same address, so this is probably a red herring!

                      they are all numbered together, I realised afterwards that they have sequential embarkation numbers, so clearly all together.
