    These books, published in 10 editions between 1967 and 1996 list the names of all the family members (including both surnames), home and business addresses of about 12,000 Cuban families living in exile.

    Originally published for many years in Cuba as the Libro de Oro de la Sociedad Habanera (Golden Book of Habana Society) by Joaquin de Posada y de Vega (d. 1993), Society Page Reporter for the Habana newspapers Diario de la Marina and Avance, these books originally listed notables from Habana's society, including business and professional people. Publication ceased after Castro assumed power.

    Posada resumed publication of the books as an Anuario de Familias Cubanas (Yearbook of [Exiled] Cuban Families) in 1967 from Puerto Rico and later Miami. The last edition was published posthumously in 1996.

    As of March 2001 we are informed that the following volumes are still available from the Publisher:

    • 1988 edition (last one published by Posada) - about 40-50 books remain.
    • 1996-97 edition (last edition published) - a few bound books and several boxes of unbound books remain.

    For further information contact the Publisher: Ana M. Garcia, 2500 SW 99 Avenue, Miami, FL 33165.

    A faithful reproduction of the 1958 Habana telephone book (both white and yellow pages). Good for nostalgia buffs and to check on where someone lived or the location of a business in that era.

  • [EN] Enciclopedia Economica de Cuba Republicana - tomo I - Las Empresas de Cuba 1958 (Economic Encyclopaedia of Republican Cuba - Vol I - The Enterprises of Cuba 1958), Guillermo Jimenez, Ediciones Universal, Miami, Florida, 2000.

    Contains 1380 entries, each one providing details of one of the principal industrial or commercial enterprises existing in Cuba in 1958. Typically includes the history of the enterprise, names of owners, and in some cases their relationship to other well known industrialists, merchants or politicians. Also includes information on the product brand names and on the enterprise's capitalization including major bank loans. Truly a definitive reference work, which we have found quite useful and accurate. NOTE: Although above link is for the complete work, only Volume I has been published as of 2007.
