red mail GONZALEZ in Benwell
I am researching my partners Grandmother, Henrietta GONZALEZ b1898 m Wood (father Jose Ramon Gonzalez b1871) and wondered if you recognised the names? Would love to be able to trace them further. The family "believe" our Gonzalez's came from "Malta"? possibly but there is no evidence so far. Henrietta married John William Wood in 1923 but the marriage cert states her father is sadly deceased. If you link with any of the above I would very grateful to hear from you!
