Born in San Juan Puerto Rico. Paternal grandfather is Makino Honda Ushida BD 1883, Osaka, Japan / DD 1964 San Juan, Puerto Rico. Paternal Great grandfather is Tadao Honda BD Japan & DD unknown.

Is believed that Makino Honda emigrated out of Japan with other five family members, including mother in the early twentieth century. Makino may have lived in Germany or other European countries and very likely in Brazil before entering the United States. In 1923 moved from New York, USA to Caguas, Puerto Rico to repair and maintain an ice plant. There he married Consuelo Torrent Llera. They had 4 children: Gloria, Virginia, Margarita and Naomi, my father.

My cousins, children and I are very interested to reconnect and collaborate with the Hondas in Brazil as we believe we are related and to share family histories.
