Planning an ancestry trip to Pontevedra

Hi,

My mom and I will be going to Spain in September and we are on a quest to find some ancestry information on my mom's grandfather. I was wondering if anyone might know where we could find some information in the city of Pontevedra (where he was from). Also what is the best way to travel to Pontevedra from Santiago de Compostela?

Thanks

Hi,

The best way to arrive in the city from Santiago is the high-speed train that arrives in about 30 minutes. check here: http://www.renfe.com/viajeros/index.html. You can even buy your tickets on the Renfe website.

In Pontevedra city I think that you should first try to find some information in the city hall: 30 Michelena street http://www.pontevedra.gal or in the Subdelegación del Gobierno of Pontevedra ( Government Subdelegate's Office of the Province of Pontevedra): España square …minhap.gob.es/web/…sub_pontevedra.html

I hope this helps

Regards
