Posted: Thu Mar 26, 2015 11:38 am Post subject: Help needed to find information about my grandmother
My grandmother on my fathers side was Antonio Ruiz Plaza..and lived in Malaga. she had three children in the 1920s.. Antonio. Eduardo and one daughter... her husband died young .. and I was told my father Antonio worked as a young man of around 14 in a post office to help out at home... I dont have many details..except that my father was in the Foreign legion then the British Army during WW2... With whatever political trouble in Spain back then he must have left the Spanish army to join the Legion.. and was seen as a desterter and was never allowed back into Spain.. so he stayed in England most of his life where he had two families... He never knew about my birth as my mother never told him..... It took me years to find where he was and sadly Id missed him by one year as he died just a year before I found where he had loved.. Ive since visited his grave in Derby... I was told by his family that he was taken back to Malaga for burial.. and I actually booked a holiday and went over then found out they had lied and he was here in the UK... Now I would love to find out more about my grandparents if possible as Im getting older now and would love to know .. any help would be appreciated...
