I was born in Saint Petersburg Florida, My maternal side comes from a small island of Menorca, It is the second largest of the Balearic Islands near Spain, We are called " Minorcans" In 1768 my maternal ancestors were among those original indentured servants of Dr. Andrew Turnbull a Scottish physician, some family ancestors include the actress Judy Canova, and the family of Stephen Vincent and William Rose Benet, they settled in Saint Augustine Florida and Mayport Florida. My desire is to have a Florida Pioneer Certificate for my maternal side as I'm an 8th generation Floridian born and raised. At present I'm working on proving my patriot from my paternal side for DAR, My paternal side came from England and settled in Virginia and Kentucky. James Monroe our 5th President is among my ancestors from my paternal side.

Genealogy has been my passion since about 2005, When I start on a research project I will just get lost in my family trees and my Ancestors stories seem to come alive as I document their lives for my future up coming Generations to learn and enjoy as I have, This way my Ancestors will never be forgotten.
Manuel Solana/Margaret Linst I am a Solana descendent. You show a blocked picture of Manuel Solana & fmily with Margaret Linst as his wife on Ancestry. I would like to have a copy or the picture if possible. I have some confusion as to Margaret's married name. I show all her names to be Margaret Elizabeth Billings Chandler Solana born in Georgia in 1847 and death on 2/1/1930 in Jacksonville. I found her in the Jacksonville city directory as Margaret Solana in 1929. I also see Seymore as a last name in some cases. You have her as Linst.
From the census I found her as Billings married to Chandler then to Solana. Can you help me? She was my GG Grandmother and I am trying to verify her death date and cemetery,.
