Celeste, I too have visited and have relatives from Ligares! Perhaps we could
explore any possible connections.
My great-grandfather is buried in their small cemetery by the church. Many are
in unmarked graves but his had his picture included.
I also have a branch in Peredo, a small village down the road.
I’d love to exchange information.
