Talking to your brother two days ago, he said to ask you for help.

I’ve been looking for a friend that moved either to Atlanta or Houston.

His name is Gustavo Estensoro Cuellar.

He either drop the Cuellar name or as in some cases where they used the mothers last name  instead of his given last name, Gustavo may have had the same problem.

Maybe you can help me locate him?

Is it possible?

Let me know,

I created a tree and I am finding many records for him, here is one with a phone number

[Note to Reader: I changed the address and Zip number and Phone Number]

G Estenssoro in the U.S. Phone and Address Directories, 1993-2002

I also put you on the tree as guest so you will get an e-mail from Ancestry saying you have been invited to a tree.

You will not have to pay anything. You will have to create an ID and password to access the tree and files. If you need help let me know.

Boy, you are good. I expected it was going to take at least a few weeks if not longer.

Yes, that is him.

As I suspected he moved his mother’s maiden name as his middle name.

He is younger than me by two months

He lived two blocks from our house in La Paz and we went to “Colegio La Salle” together he was in my same class.

He had a bike “Fran” that he would never let me use.

Thank you very much, I will call him tomorrow with the information you are giving me in the other e-mails.

By the way can you find a person, a friend that lived in La Paz and then moved to Buenos Aires and after I saw him, during my visit to my sister Miriam, he disappeared from the map?

Thanks again

Hi E,

I did a quick search in hopes of getting some records that I could confirm but all I got was what you see below.

The search was for: Jose Antonio Gallardo Rios

Born: 1938 or 1937, possible lived in Buenos Aire, Argentina

Results 1-20 per page of 1,312,379 possible records.

Now you see why I need more information to narrow the search.

Thanks for taking the time to help me find this person. Obviously the information below is not for him since he was born in Bolivia, but that’s all the information I have.

Regarding Gustavo Estensoro,

I called the number you gave me, twice, the day before yesterday, Saturday, and had no answer. I left a message and yesterday I receive a message from a lady, to call her.

I did that today and his wife answered.

She told me that Gustavo passed away yesterday.

I was shocked. What a sad conclusion to my search.

Thank you very much.


This is a sad story but one that will remind us to do the search for that missing friend.

Thank You

Jose from Clarkston, Michigan
