I am searching for my Grandmother's family in Nagarote, Nicaragua: Anita Mendoza Mayorga, left Nagarote in 1947 at the age of 22. She now lives in California with a very loving family, but hasn't seen her family in almost 60 years.

The family has always wanted to know our Nicaraguan relatives and my father has made the most attempts at researching and contacting them. My father has actually written to and received a couple letters from my grandmother's youngest sister, Delfina Mendoza.

The last correspondence my father had with his Tia Delfina, was March 27, 1984. The address listed is:
Barrio el porbenir del puerto media cuadra arriba 3 al norte una abajo- Nagarote, Nicaragua.

Any information on family, how to locate family in Nicaragua, or travel advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you and God Bless.

-Emy Lopez

There are 117 Mendoza Mayorga, none of them in Nagarote and nobody is registered as Delfina Mendoza Mayorga.
If you provide other names like the parents of Delfina, or her husband or children with two surnames, I might find somebody that is a relative of Delfina.
Almost 22 years without any communication is a long time, but I will try to find any relative is you can provide more names.
The information I have is from the list of people older than 16 years registered for casting ballots in October 2001 presidential election in Nicaragua.
Sorry, I cannot halp you.

---Her sister: Petra Mayorga Medina -Born in 1895-an American Doctor brought her over to the U.S. as a nanny when she was 19 years old. In 1947, after she became a widow, she traveled back to Nicaragua and brought her niece, Anita Mayorga Mendoza (my grandmother) to help her in the U.S.

I could not find any of the names you sent me. Please send the names of your grandmother nephews and nices, for example, the full names of Delfina's children including the full names of the parents.

I will not advise you to travel to Nicaragua unless you have a good lead. In Nicaragua there is not a people finder office, and visiting Nagarote to ask neighbors in Barrio Fernanado Salazar whether they know the whereabouts of your grandmother relatives will be a waste of time and money.

We should try again looking for your grandmother nephews and nices.

I have an Excel file ready for you is you write to my address jmejial@yahoo.com
I cannot tell if any of the relatives is there, but it lists all the descendants of Mendoza Mayorga males and females. For examples, there are several children of an Anita Mendoza Mayorga born in the 1950s that could be your grandaunts children. Your grandmother is the only one that can tell who is who.
The worksheet has four sheets: child, father, mother and catalog. Child lists all 117 registered to vote carrying Mendoza Mayorga as a surname. Father lists people that has a Mendoza Mayorga as father and the same to the mother sheet. Catalog lists the municipal code where the child in each of the three sheets was born. The last column in each sheet has the street address of the children on that sheet that you can use for writing a letter in Spanish. The first column is the municipal code for the place of residence that you should use for the street address.

Please make note that the surname is Mayorga-Mendoza and not Mendoza-Mayorga.

Thanks!

You are confusing me. In your first message you stated that were looking for Anita Mendoza Mayorga and I did the search for the surnames in that order.
Please confirm. I do not want to do another wrong search.
