On of my great great grandfathers was born in Spain in 1838 and emigrated to NY around 1858. I have plenty of records of his after entering the U.S. but nothing pertaining to him before his appearance in NY in 1858. He was a prominent Spanish Aristocrat who was an agent of Queen Isabella of Spain. He had invested great deal of money on behalf of the Queen. He founded the Spanish Benevolent Society in 1864 and apparently represented Spain in NY in other capacities before she was deposed.
Where can I find any information on Magin Janer before his appearance in NY in 1858?
