My name is Ricky. I was born and raised in Miami, Fl. My parents are from cuba. My father Mike Capote was born in Alquizar, Cuba. He has told me many times about one of our ancestors called El viejo del capote. His surname according to my father was Rodriguez. He would always wear a cape. Which is called a "Capote" in spanish. He had 5 or 7 children and whenever they would go to the store they would refer that they were the children of el viejo del capote. it stuck. And that's how we became Capote from Rodriguez. I am building my family tree and genealogy. So far I have a good 7 generations. But I have little on my Capote side. If anyone has any information to share that might help me. If would greatly be appreciated. I love genealogy, It's addictive!
