My research is on the name GRACIDA; the name appears to have originated in the State of Oaxaca. I suspect it is a different spelling of the name GRAJEDA or GRAXEDA or GRAXERA. Early documents show various spellings of the name GRACIDA as GRAZIDA, GRASIDA, GRASEDA and the same names with an "S" at the end. I have an extensive list of GRACIDA families members (male and female) married to other families (from ACEVEDO through ZINGUENZA) dating back to the early 1600. The majority of the earlier families is in Oaxaca, some in Mexico, Puebla, Nuevo Leon, Guerrero and in the U.S since 1904. I will exchange and would appreciate any information about any members.
