Taiguei! I help people connect to their ancestors.

I'm a genealogist, public educator and blogger based in Tampa, Florida. Currently i'm working on my book: Reconstructing the Missing Registro de Esclavos for Northwest Puerto Rico. This consists of family histories for those transitioning to freedom and transcriptions of the 1868-1870 cedulas (registration papers) for District 3.

My project makes visible the connections between slavery, genealogy and family histories in Puerto Rico through digitized archival materials. These resources are a means of writing our ancestors back into a historical narrative that encompasses the richness of who we are.

As service I periodically teach a genealogy class oriented towards knowing more about our AfroIndigenous ancestors, how to proceed with research and topics such as how concepts of caste, and colorism shaped archives and the past.
