Beatriz’s maternal grandfather was Adolfo Marcelo Müller Oliphant (the son of Walther Carl Müller and Nora Oliphant).

Walther was a German emigrant, from Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, and was the son of Rudolph Carl Müller and Ida Johanna Luise Henriette Türk. Nora was an American emigrant, from Baltimore, Maryland, and was the daughter of Joseph W. Oliphant and Georgeanna Tidings.
Beatriz’s maternal grandmother was Berta Elvira Bentjerodt Becker (the daughter of Ernesto Bentjerodt Machmar and Olga Herminia Becker Wiswede). Berta was born in Valdivia. Ernesto was the son of German emigrants, Gottlieb Eduard Bentjerodt, of Osterode am Harz, Lower Saxony, and Wilhelmine Machmar, of Kassel, Hesse. Herminia was the daughter of a German emigrant, Otto Becker, and of Elvira Wiswede Bentjerodt, whose own parents, Hermann Wiswede and Friederike Mathilde Bentjerodt, were German emigrants, from Haldensleben, Saxony-Anhalt. Eduard and Mathilde were siblings.
Beatriz’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her fifth great-grandmother, Johanna Dorothea Maria Wollwege.
