Potosina Emigration in the 18th Century: The Díaz Lineage in Calbuco

Pablo A. Pérez


The study documents the presence of an emigrant from the city of Potosí, who was established in the southern Spanish colonial possession of Calbuco (belonging to the orbit of Chiloé), in the first half of the eighteenth century. The lineage originated by him appears in two different branches, providing genealogical and historical materials on both locations. Within a period of almost two centuries, there are approximately thirty people documented that are linked to the male lineage.
