Revisiting the website after a decade. Any new info contact me at email@example.com
Raymond Mejias and Esther Mejias (my cousins and both are half-brother-and-sister)contact me when you have free time.
It would be great if I can meet the extended Mejias family
of San Sebastian, but after a few contacts in 2001, they were not interested.
To my Uncle Gabriel Mejias: Thanks for informing Aunt Herminia Jimenez Vera that my father: Ramon Augusto Mejias Soto passed on to the spiritual realm.
My father's second wife, Eugenia Santiago never contacted me of my father's passing. Last time I spoke with my father was by phone from New York to Puerto Rico. I remember speaking to my father and cutting him off abruptly after he was bothered by my insistance of him signing an application for his birth certificate for a genealogy project my nephew Brian M. Jusino Mejias had for school. I managed to obtain it along with my father's death certificate. You see, after my father and I spoke, a month-or-two went by and he expired possibly from diabetes. I remember him telling me that the dialysis treatment he was receiving was debilitating. He died May 7, 2002; at the age of 69. It's a coincidence how I, Miguel Mejias (Jimenez) share the same first name as my Uncle Miguel Angel ("Guigi") Mejias (Soto) & my Grandfather Miguel Ramon Mejias (Perez).
My Uncle Guigi is the father of my cousins: Raymond Mejias & Esther Mejias. It is believed he may have had 3 other children by other women.
After speaking with Esther & Raymond, the two names mentioned by them, are Esther Maria, and Marcus of which both do not know their whereabouts.
Again I am inspired by completing the family genealogy project. What rekindled the flame was Martin Sheen being featured in the tv series: "Who Do You Think You Are? In addition, Martin Sheen's film, THE WAY, was a coping tool for accepting the death of Coleman Daniel Green (brother of Jeffrey Richard "Rick" Green-my dear fatherly friend) who died at the hands of his son Jesse.
We must tell our story in order to heal and move on. I hope I can volunteer and pay tribute to those who do not have a voice via the family tree project.
The song: "Hands" by Jewel comes to mind as does the "Living Years" by Mike & The Mechanics; Barbra Streisand's "Papa Can You Hear me; Dan Fogelberg's "The Leader of the Band/Forefathers," & lastly Luther Vandross' "Dance with My Father."
Let's pass the torch from one-generation to-another of the next Legacykeepers of the Family Tree Surname(s).
