My name is Taty. I have been searching for my maternal grandmothers family for ten years, but to no avail. My maternal grandmother's name was HILDA CUPID. To my knowledge she was born in Trinidad and she definitely passed in Trinidad in the year 1997. I was pregnant and on bedrest at that time, so I could not travel and attend the funeral. My mother did not know her mother as she was given to my grandfather C. Straker. I will leave the rest out as a verification of TRUE Connection to my blood family members. IF you are my family you will have the details. Please know I don't care about sides, issues, rumors, secrets, or past guilts. None of that matters now. I just want to know my family and learn more about the woman I favor in face and shape.
What I do know:
My mother met I believe THREE natural brothers and TWO natural sisters(one by the name of Juliet I think that lived in London at the time) during my grandmothers funeral in 1996/1997
As I understood it, my uncles and aunts were looking for my mother and wanted to be in her life but the connection never went anywhere once my mother left the island. (People, places, pain and things, If this information is incorrect, please forgive me, but this is what I was told.)
So I have taken a huge initiative. I have actually flown to Trinidad to find my family. Calling each Cupid in the white pages was a fail. Not to mention werd and embarrassing, but family means a lot to me and so is knowing more about my self and where my bloodline links to.
In closing, I am set to go to the records building soon, and finally get some answers. However should anyone see this post and know my family, or has heard this story in your own family, PLEASE, PLEASE reach out to me on here. Many thanks in advance.
Hi, my name is Paulina Stoner formally DeSylva. I am from Trinidad and Tabago. My mother had four sibblings named Norma, Nora, Cecelia and a brother Sunny Domingo. Cecelia was my god-mother. Aunt Cecelia and Aunt Nora moved to the States and I don't know where. Some say New Jersey or New York. I think Aunt Nora married a man with the last name of Mark.
I have first and second cousins in the states and do not know where they are. I know of one cousin named Terrence John who lives in Brooklyn, New York and is married and had two sons the last I heard, they may have had more kids by now. Last contact with them was ten years ago. My mother's maiden name was Evelyn Sylva DeSylva and she married an American by the name of Paul Clifford Stoner in December of 1946 in Port of Spain, Trinidad while still stationed there.
When his tour of duty ended he adopted my sister and I and brought all four of us to America in November of 1947. I have been in the states every since. I will never stop looking for my family until the day I die.
