Trying to locate my Family in Asturias.
My Grandfather was born October 29 or 30, 1878. He emigrated to Cuba around 1900's.
I have been told he was from Oviedo and he was one of 13 children.
He would travel from Cuba to Spain with my Grandmother Maria Nonell.
He emigrated to Tampa Fl in 1908.
He was a cigar maker in Tampa.

Welcome to the forum!

You'll want to read this message about what "Oviedo" means. Unfortunately, this news will probably makes your task harder.

Also, the last name Fernandez is very common in Asturias. I'm not sure about Gomez, so you'll want to check for that in the white pages in Asturias, as described in the following link. There are other ideas on this page, too.

Hello, Islandbaby:

Have you the name of your grandfather's brothers?
It may help. It is quite difficult to find information only with your grandfather's name, as Art said, it is common.

I have found a Vicente Gomez Fernandez, from Panes (Oviedo) that emigrated to Cuba. Could he be a brother of your grandfather?.

Any name may help.

Marta.

I wish I did Marta. I am asking the cousins again if they remember any names that were mentioned.

All that I was able to find out is that my Grandfathers Mother’s name is Josepha.

Hi,

I was traying to find some information. The only thing I could find is a couple of notes in the Boletín Oficial de la Provincia de Oviedo, years 1895. I include here the copys. One is related with a inheritance and some of the heirs are absent (1895) and the other (1905) is a list with the names of the heads of houshold. In both you can see that Antonio Gomez Fernández is from the council of Tineo, and in the second, it is said that the small village is Villajulián (Council of Tineo).

I hope it is your grandfather. You can start asking for his baptism certificate to the parish of San Martín de Semproniana in the council of Tineo as Villajulian is a small village belonging that parish.

Marta
