Creator/Contributor:García de Moncada, Oliverio, b. 1914
This collection is comprised of correspondence, genealogical research materials, a few newspaper articles and religious memorabilia
of a Mexican family descended from Sicilian royalty. The majority of the papers appear to have been gathered together for
the purpose of proving royal bloodlines, in order to restore the family's proper titles of Italian nobility. A sketched outline
of the family tree is included in the carton.
