My grandfather's name was Isidoro Costales (Ysidro?), born 1890 in Gijon. He migrated to the US or South America in 1922. I cannot find baptism records. I do not know if he had siblings. He may have been born in Seville, or lived there.

thanks for any tips you can provide!

He was the son of Feliciano Costales and Sinforosa Menéndez, from Quintueles (Villaviciosa, Asturias) quite near to Gijón. My grandmother was the granddaughter of Feliciano and Sinforosa.

Have you tried the onlibe forms for the registro civil (Gijon - Xixon)? Here is the link https://www.registrocivil.es/info/asturias/gijon/ If you can find where you ancestor was born, you could also determine the local parish and ask for documents. The registro civil goes back only to 1871. Parish records may be in the parish or the diocesan offices. Some civil and parish records were destroyed during the guerra civil.
