GN 00307.160 Requesting Evidence From Spanish-Speaking Countries — Spanish Surnames
Double surnames are used in Spanish-speaking countries.
Spanish names consist of three parts: first the person's given name, then the father's first (paternal) surname and last the mother's paternal surname. If document requests do not show both surnames, the vital statistics records cannot be located.
Get the claimant's complete name—not just a first name, middle initial and surname. Get the Spanish names, not anglicized versions.
Father's name: Jose Huerta Alejandre
Mother's name: Maria Gonzales Navarro
Child's name: Juan Huerta Gonzales
