Staying Connected

The Guel family has touched not only their home neighborhoods, but all of Silicon Valley through their continued service, dedication, and commitment to the community

Silicon Valley

This website was initially developed to keep the descendants of Pablo & Carmen Guel in touch with each other, but over time, it has helped us reconnect with family from all over.


As the Guel family continues to grow, migrate, and reconnect online, we are reminded of just how powerful the internet can be as a tool to bring us together over and over again, generation after generation.
