Granados Marquez was born on September 14, 1880 in
Aracena, Huelva, Spain. Maria de la Concepcion Rey
Capdevila was born on July 31, 1881 in Seviile, Spain.
They were married on January 20, 1903 in a civil ceremony.
Since Ramon was in Cuba at the time, the marriage was
done by proxy with Concepcion's brother, Viriato standing
in for Ramon. (At the time, unmarried women could not
travel without an escort).
then joined Ramon in Cuba and they were married in a
ceremony before a priest on February 10, 1903. Their
first child, Luis was born in Cuba in 1904. They returned
to Spain and had three more children (Connie, Rose and
Clara). With four children they immigrated to America
in 1911 - Ramon going first with his wife and four children
following soon after.
had a total of eleven children, four boys and seven
girls. The story of the life they began together, and
the stories of their descendents, now numbering over
400, are highlighted in this website.
Granados Family Web Site is being put together through
the combined efforts of many Granados'. For now we are
focusing on the First Generation. It is our hope that
the site will eventually include information on the
generations that lived in Spain as well as the second,
third, fourth - and now fifth generations in the United
States and around the world.

the Granados Family Directory - Up through 2010 this
directory has held the master genealogy tables and
contact details for the whole clan in the format of
a word document and it has now reached the bursting
point and really cannot do the double duty anymore.
We are splitting the contents of the directory into
1) genealogy tables and migrating them to an open
source online genealogy platform through Wikitree.com
and is now open to all and 2) a private phone book
type directory of contact details.Check your data
to see if you are there. You can add and update information
yourself as you need or contact the site with any
updates. Look on the genealogy page for more details.
NEED YOUR HELP! - The original 11 children are
all gone now and our site still contains missing information
which we would like to record for posterity. Please
think about submitting information on those of the
first generation that do not yet have their biographies
posted. Simple reflections or memories that comprise
a few sentences are as welcome as full biographies.
Us - Shared for the first time on this site are
the results of genealogical research projects digging
in the Granados ancestry in Spain commissioned from
a professional researcher which has gone back as far
as 9 generations from Ramon Granados Marquez and Maria
Concepcion Rey Capdevilla. This research had been
costly, time consuming, and somewhat tricky due to
the family connection to the town of Aracena which
had the misfortune of having its civil and ecclesiastical
records burned during the Spanish Civil war in 1936.
Many avenues remain to pursue and we would like to
commission further research. Also maintaining this
site while not costly is not without cost. Our new
Support Us page has links
for making paypal donations and we hope you'll conside
sending some funds our way.
