Has anybody actually traced their ancestor back to the ships?

Listas de Pasajeros a Indias, Passenger Lists to the Indies?

Buen dia Marcelina,

Muchísimas gracias por la información lo agradezco mucho.

Bonito día.


While I have references of several ancestors having come from Spain, I haven't been able to locate them on the ship lists or to find their documentation at the Casa de la Contratación.

Diego de Temiño must have headed first to one of the islands, be it Cuba or Dominicana. By 1518 there was no Cartagena, Veracruz was founded in 1519.
