My Grandfather Severo Jimenez
This item was contributed by a user and has not been curated by a project historian.
A musician at heart he always found a way to create music around him. He wrote many "corridos" about his life. I have the words to one in specific about his journey as a bracero. Unfortunately I was never able to get the music written down. My Grandpa passed away last August 2013 and while there are several stories I was able to write down about his life I am sad that I missed so many others. I have a notebook that I hand wrote as he dictated his life so often.
My plan is to write a memoir about what I do know about his life.
If anybody that happens to read this ever met him please don't hesitate to contact me.
