    Los conocí en 1999 = I met them in 1999 / I came to know them in 1999

    I agree, that's the best translation, "I met them..."

    Note that "to meet" also translates to 'encontrarse.' Viviane specifies 'meeting for the first time' with a little bit of context (1999), or the "came to know them" translation.

    Here's some examples that can help you clarify:

    Los conocí lunedi, y nos hemos encontrados miercoles. = I met them for the first time on Monday, and we got together on Wednesday.

    Nos appenas conocí hoy = We just met today. / We didn't know each other before today.

    Other expressions that might work:

    -We didn't know each other until today.
    -We first met in January.
    -Our friend Juan introduced us to each other.
    -We haven't met yet. My name is Brian. (To introduce myself when the timing is a little bit late.)

    I hope that helps!
