This paper, more than a presentation of definitive results, is a work-in-progress of one of the central aspects of my doctoral thesis, focused on family archives in the Canary Islands and its role in the construction of memory and nobility identity in the Modern Age. This investigation follows one of the lines of research developed by the Historical Archival, the Social History of the Archives and the Documentary Turn: the use of the archive for the construction of identity(ies), social distinction and legitimation of the domain, from the perspective of family archives, understood as historical constructions and places of power. For this purpose, a proposal for analysis of the family archives and the first results obtained through the case study of the Conde de Siete Fuentes’ funds will be presented.
