Question: Can anyone help find where I'm from!?
Ok!. My problem is that I'm not really sure where one side of my family is from!. I know my father's side is just African-American, but my mother's side get's a little more complicated!. My mom's side is mixed; consisting of Black/Hispanic and possibly Portuguese/Brazilian!. That's what I need help with!.

On my mother's side, her grandfather was born in Honduras!. My question is where did his family actually come from before Honduras!? I have last names and some dates, but that's really it; I'll give you all the info I can!.

Some of his family's last names were: Bustillo, Rosario, and Guevara!. I researched the last names, and all of them are of either Spanish or Portuguese descent!.

He was born in 1918, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras!. That's really all I know!. But when i tried researching it, alot of results I got were of Brazilian/Portugese descent when I researched the last names and dates!.

Any info/help is greatly appreciated!. Thank you very much!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Mexico, Central and South America were discovered by the Spanish!. In fact Honduras was discovered on Columbus 4th voyage to the Americas!. After the initial discovery others were sent there from Spain to establish settlements!. They eventually married the native indians already indiginous to the area!. Some of the same surnames are Portuguese, since Portugal is next to Spain!. Just a slightly different pronunciation!. Brazil was colonized by the Portuguese in 1532!.
Chances are your ancestors are Spanish and Mayan!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
