About us

9 September 2016 - this project is undergoing reconstruction

Can the Ramos branches find common ground through DNA samplings? The connective tissues of our roots lost through the migration of our long forgotten loved ones who left their homes in search of new worlds, new beginnings, new adventures. Let us reach out to each other with the new technology of dna testing.

The DNA project is open to all Ramos descendants.

Genetic genealogy through DNA testing is a fairly new and fast growing field of genealogical research. It is used to identify individuals and reconstruct family relationships. Many ethnic and one-name societies are participating in DNA testing to connect with others who share a common ancestor. These groups can be located through a simple search of ethnic or surname societies and DNA on the Internet.

DNA testing can also connect researchers to that elusive ancestor or to an ancestor's unknown homeland as well as connecting to another family of the same surname. DNA testing will answer that question. Family Tree DNA offers project members a discounted rate for each individual test.

The success of our project will depend on the number of participants who join our testing group.

Ramos  (Translation for this name is Fields, Branches or Bouquet)

Very extended throughout Spain, with old Austrian origins, so we can assure that Ramos is an Austrian last name. An important branch of the Ramoses that appeared early, were seen in the Conquest of America. They proved their nobility in the Orders of Santiago of Compostela (1663 - 1699), Calatrava (1744 - 1888) and Alcántara (1693 - 1695) as well as numerous times in the Royal Chancellery of Valladolid and in the Royal Courts of Oviedo (1759, 1763 and 1794). Don José Antonio Ramos y Fernández was dubbed Marques of the Fidelity House of Ramos in April 5, 1815. Don Antonio Ramos of Meneses and Ramírez were dubbed Duke of "BaZos" July 31, 1875.
