Looking for Buitragos from Barranquilla, Colombia.

+3 votes
I'm specifically looking for family of Electa Lopez Buitrago, born approx 1885, died about 1950. She married Santiago Jose DeCastro Duncan. She was the mother of Elmers Jose DeCastro, Carmen Ysabel DeCastro, and Alicia DeCastro. They lived in Barranquilla, Colombia. I have no record of who her parents were and would love to learn more. This is my Great Grandmother.

Welcome to G2G forum Djrianna.

The baptismal record of your grandfather Elmers Jose (1900) is viewable  at a "Family history center" or a "FamilySearch affiliate library" acording to the following record:


There are also available images of the baptismal records of others of the children of Santiago and Electa:

Carmen Isabel (1889): https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QG6Y-NSW3

Electa Matilde (1891): https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QG6Y-HHPG

Sara Cecilia (1894): https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QG6T-2XV3

Baptismal records at that time usually lists the names of the paternal and maternal grandparents besides the names of the parents.

It is well worth viewing the original images of these records.
