I spent countless amounts of hours over the years surfing the Internet in
search of information on any subject, topic, reference or links to the name
Silos. This page contains quite a few interesting links that provided me
information relevant to the development of this website. Since I do not
personally host any of these links, I can not guarantee their current status or
availability. Let's hope they will always be on the Internet for us to
access. Here we go....
Pioneers - This link mentions Great Grand Pa Leonardo Silos, Rosario Silos
and Juan Silos, Jr. My short write up on Great Grand Pa Leonardo was
"borrowed" from this article.
Possibly our relatives:
Here is a listing of other Silos Families and information about them. Needless to say, I can not at this point in time link them to our Family tree. At least we are in touch and I hope someday, something might just come out of this contact.
- Kerwin Montinola Ronquillo did an outstanding job of putting together the Montinola Family Website. There are a lot of Silos' listed in this site and some photos as well. Meet
Arturo Silos, Antonio Sr, Antonio, Jr. Gretchen, Michael, Philip,
and Merceditas. Kevin will try to help put us in touch with them. Hopefully we will be able to one day, find out how we
are related. There must be a link
Joseph Silos (email@example.com) Family website - I've been working with Joseph Silos who hosts another Silos Family website, (http://www.silosfamily.org) to try and find out how we could be related. So far, no positive results. Joseph has done a nice research job of documenting his Silos Family ancestry. Maybe if we all go back far enough, we will find that common link. There must be a
The Buenavista-Silos Family - Perry Buenavista's family has done an
excellent job of building their family tree. See:
Our Sylvia Silos married a Jose Buenavista.
Jose Maria Silos Family- Jose Maria's family is from Spain. He was quite excited to find this website and was wondering as well if we were somehow related.
Honorio Silos Family - Christine Silos and I are still trying to figure out where her
branch of the Silos Family comes from. She has no other information other than what you see on this page. There must be a link
Christian Silos Family - The Christian Silos family is from Belgium whose descendants came from Catalunia, Spain. For sure the Silos name is not of Belgian origins. Again, how could we be related.
Other Silos Contacts - The following Silos families wrote to make themselves known to us after finding this website. I will continue to publish all the names of Silos' that write. Who knows, their information might just turn up more interesting links....
