comments: Have you ever wondered about your
ancestors? How did they live and work in days long passed? Who were
your great-grandparents? Was your family really "una familia" in
Puerto Rico? These are questions we ask ourselves but just don't
know how to begin to find the answers. Most second and third generation
Puerto Rican Americans know very little about their own cultural
history, and much less about their family history. Genealogy is
the study of this history, the search of one's family lineages.
Who knows? You may be related to or descended from Roberto Clemente,
Luis Muñoz Marin, Albizu Campos, maybe even Cofresí the pirate,
or Cristóbal Colón!

Folkloric Dance Company
San Antonio, TX 78247
President: Jesus Calzada firstname.lastname@example.org
VPres. : Audrey Calzada
This dance company was created by Olga "Ongui"
Chavez in Killeen Texas in 1995. She wanted to provide a venue for
our youth who were born or raised away from the island and knew
little of our culture. When Ongui returned to Luquillo, Puerto Rico,
the group ended. It has recently been resurrected in San Antonio
by her son, and Co-Founder of the Non-Profit organization, Jesus
"CJ" Calzada and his wife Audrey R. Calzada. Our focus
is on Puerto Rican Folkloric dance. We are a youth dance group ranging
in ages from 7 to 18. Our mission remains the same - to provide
a venue for our children to learn more about our culture and history.
