If you are currently researching your ancestors in Spain then you will love this resource. I am not saying that they are listed within the following six volumes but at least you can try and see if their last names are.
The following six volumes are titled "Nobilarios de los Reinos y Titulos de Espana". In English the translation is something like this, The Nobility of the Kingdoms and Titles of Spain.
Once you find their last names you will be able to read some background information on that particular family crest and last name. Make sure to read between the lines and see if any notations are listed. These notations usually provide sources as to where the information came for thus providing us with more clues as to where to find more information.
What motivated me to search for these books was the presentation by Brent Cruz on his presentation to the New Mexico Genealogical Society. If you missed it you can read more about it and or view the presentation here: https://mexicangenealogy.info/genealogical-research-in-medieval-asturias/
If you liked this post help me spread the word by sharing it on your facebook page or emailing your friends and letting them know about our website.
I truly hope you have fun searching for the last names in your family tree.
