I have begun researching my family tree recently. It is a project that was first started by my sister, Nadine a number of years ago. The family tradition has it that we are related to the titled family Guzman de Olivares of Spain. Research has proven that the Guzamn family was a powerful one indeed, and with it came a heritage of Dukes (Medina Sidonia), Kings (Most all of the royal families of Europe related by marriage) Saints (Teresa de Avila, and Dominic (Dominican Order of Monks) and other clergy. On my wife, Marilyn's, side is a vibrant Italian heritage that she has been exploring. Every time we have our family reunions, she brings out the family tree to add to it and for the rest of the family to enjoy. On my mother's side, there is another intriguing link. My grandmother has always said she was directly related to Danny Kaye, the actor. (Daniel Kaminsky by birth). The proof of all of it is yet to find, the search will be rewarding. If anyone has any information on the recent link to the Alvarez de Toledo Line, or any of my ancestors that will help make the Royal link, or any other information, please let me know.
