My husband's paternal line, the ROJOs, were from Sinovas. We have looked at all the parish book, back to the earliest ones, and all the ROJO family had their baptisms, marriages and funerals at this church in Sinovas. The records go back to the Napoleonic war, in the early 1800s. The earlier books were either destroyed, confiscated or hidden and never recovered. The earliest records from about 1815 or so list the grandparents of the person being buried or married, and so we can trace the family back to about the mid 1700s.
This little churchyard was full of tombstones that had the surname ROJO.
