- I am new to this group, and i hope someone may be able to help. I
have been looking for my husband's father for two years with only
dead ends. His name is Gerardo Blanco and he is of cuban origin. In
1979 he was a resident of Miami Florida and his father and brother
still reside there. We are having a baby in August and would like
some information on his side of the family as all we know about him
is his name. I appreciate any help you can give to me at this point.
