Claim Your Ancestor #32: Like Venezuela, but somewhere else

Hi!

 I found your ancestors migrating from the Canary Islands to the Creole-Cajun frontier of Louisiana.  Some stay in New Orleans, others head up the Mississippi River.


Your 6th great-grandfather (who probably hoped and or planned to live in Spanish or French borderlands) took place in starting new colony community that is calling itself "Valenzuela." 

I don't know what their slogan was but maybe "Like Venezuela, but not as close to Colombia."

You should go check that out.
