Ramon 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).

Concepcion 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.

They 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.

The 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.

  • About 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.

  • WE 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.

  • Support 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.
