The 1920 Baptism of Eulalio Garza Lopez in Mier Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following image is of the baptism of Eulalio Garza Lopez at Inmaculada Concepcion, in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico in 1920. Eulalio was my grandfather, his parents were Eusebio Garza Lopez and Paula Lopez Garza. This image indicates that his God Parents were Jorge Lopez and Concepcion Ramirez. I am guessing that Jorge is Paula’s brother since I have him listed as such from information obtained from my father.
