A few weeks ago I ran across some books that will interest you. The Golden Book of the Spanish Nobility is actually a six-volume set.
It is free to download and it has been an invaluable resource for researching the ancestors of my 13th great-grandparents Lope de Sosa and Ines Cabrera.
The real title of these volumes is Blason de Espana: Libro de orode su nobleza: Resena Genealogica y Descriptiva de la Casa Real y Grandeza de Espana y los Titulos de Castilla.
Ok, that is a mouthful and thus I came up with the title The Golden Book of the Spanish Nobility.
Volume III provided the clues to further research my ancestors. Using this books and others that I will share at a later date, I have been able to trace some lines up to 23 generations.
So, if you have found ancestors that were born in Spain or came from Spain then these books are worth searching.

should be dinteresting reading, now that I’m retired I find more to occupy my time than when I was working. Will put this email in my Genealogy file. Thanks, Moi
You are welcome.
Hello Moises, you wanted to know if my relatives were in this book. Well, if Lope de Sosa and Inés Cabrera are in the book, then yes my relatives are in it as they are my 17th great grandparents. I just started going through the first volume and just 118 pages into it I found my 16th great grandfather Carlos Ramírez de Arellano, who is apparently a Conde de Aguilar de Inestrillas. So, thanks for sharing these books, they’ll certainly keep me busy updating my family tree
Glad that you liked the book and that you found ancestors in it.
I’d like to share this page with a friend, who’s family is from Spain. How can I do that (I don’t see a share button).

Hi, Moises! Did you happen to see the Dias/Blea/Porras surnames? I am a decendent of Tomas Dias Blea and Lucia de Porras.
No, I have not.
