Families of General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico Volume Twelve (1864-1871)

Crispin Rendon has done it again! He has released yet another online Genealogical book about General Teran, Nuevo Leon. Throughout the years I have always come across his work and at some points it has provided me with invaluable clues.

In his own words on email released by him on 12-1-2011:

Families of General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico Volume Twelve (1864-1871)

Marriage and family information on the 324 marriage records found for Nuestra Senora de la Soledad parish church in General Teran for the years of 1864-1871.

The focus in this twelfth volume is on the descendants of the grooms. Besides presenting any descendants found for the marriages that occurred during this period and in General Teran, any descendants found from previous or subsequent marriages in whatever town are also presented.

The church records used as a primary source for this book are available as digital images to view, print or download for free at http://www.familysearch.org/ in the Mexican Church Records browse image collection for General Teran. The marriages for this volume are found on images 111-171 in the 1855-1882-film collection.

The index is found on page 204.

Also found in this volume is a records inspection report.

I would like to thank Viola Rodriguez Sadler for the transcription of the records inspection by the bishop of Linares found on image 149 (on page 126 of this volume).

I would like to thank Larry Kirkpatrick for the book cover design.

Tamaulipas, Mexico Civil Registration, 1800 – 2002

Are your ancestors from the Mexican state of Tamaulipas? Do you have a brick wall? If the answer to both of these questions is yes then the Civil registration records may be of great help to you. They cover the time period from 1800 to 2002 but most of them only start in the 1860′s when it was mandatory that the local government start to keep records of births, deaths, and marriages. This collection is available for free at familysearch.org and it was published online back in November 22, 2011.

Original post

About a month ago FamilySearch placed the Nuevo Leon Civil Registry images online and in a few hours I had great results with them. Then I wished that they would publish the Tamaulipas ones. Then on 22 Nov 2011 they did it. I am super happy since it includes most of the towns from my Maternal and Paternal sides and not to mention also my wife’s.

Towns of interest to me:

  • Arcabuz
  • Miguel Aleman
  • Camargo
  • Gustavo Dias Ordaz (used to be called San Miguel de Camargo)
  • Mier
  • Reynosa

This collection helped me find whom my second great grandparents through my mothers maternal side were. All this happened when I found the Civil record of the 1916 marriage of my great grandparents in Ciudad Mier. The key to finding records is finding the index of each year, usually at the end or the beginning of that particular year’s documents.

I know that many of the readers of this blog already know about this collection but if you are new to researching your family genealogy or history you definitely have to check this collection out.

Here is the link to the browsable images:

Mexico, Tamaulipas, Civil Registration, 1800-2002

I’ll be posting some transcriptions very soon!

Congregacion Arcabuz, Tamaulipas Mexico

Congregacion El Arcabuz is the name of the Mexican town that has played an integral part in the lives of both my Paternal and Maternal ancestor lines and also in my own life. This town is known by several names: El Arcabuz, Arcabuz, and Congregacion El Arcabuz. *Since first writing this post I have come to find out that it also used to be called San Andres del Arcabuz.

As of today this town it lies at the south most part of the Municipality of Miguel Aleman and borders El Rio San Juan (the San Juan River) which is the dividing line between Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon. Half of the town is on high ground covering a small hill and the rest in low ground. The lower part of town has suffered several floods.

It’s History

It is possible that the name El Arcabuz came from the european predecessor to the musket named Arcabuz wich was widely use from the 1400′s to the 1700′s (Wikipidia). *In fact it was was named after this weapon. The story is that one of the early settlers lost an Arcabuz while crossing the river San Juan near this town and since then it has been called El Arcabuz.

The exact date of the towns founding is unknown to me but According to Galindo, in a Box labeled G-25 in the Mier Casa De Cultura Archivo De Mier (Mier Archives) there is a folder labeled 1753 with an undated survey of the Mier Ranches. Arcabus appeared as having 16 Jacales and no stone buildings. If the date of the folder is correct we can safely assume that this town can date its history prior to 1753. The town currently has stone buildings but they were probably built during the 1800′s. *The official founding was on 1767 when my 5th great grandfather Francisco Angel de La Garza received his land grant. It is also mentioned in the document that he received that land grant due to having already established a ranch on said land. You can read it here: 1767 Land Grant of Francisco Angel de la Garza – Mier Porcion 14

The cemetery can also support this claim since some of the oldest tombs are made out of brick and are above ground with dates prior to 1770′s

Other than Galindo’s thesis I have not found any other documents or books detailing El Arcabuz’s history and I fear that its only remaining history is slowly dying as the eldest of its residents dye. *Thanks to Jose Garza I now know the real History of El Arcabuz and you can read it here The History of El Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico

El Arcabuz On the Web

There is a club whose name is El Arcabuz Social Club and they have two web pages with old photos. Page 1Page 2

I have also found a Facebook page titled Yo Tambien Soy De Arcabuz Tamaulipas, they also have alot of photos. I found pictures of my uncles parents in there. They also have some historical photos of town and some of its events.

Genealogy

El Arcabuz, serves also as the Civil Registry for half of the Municipality. Births, Deaths, and Marriages are still recorded in it’s Civil Registry Books. It is located in front of the plaza.

Also it’s cemetery is northeast of town and has graves dating back to the mid 1700′s. If I ever go back to this town one of my goals will be to transcribe the whole cemetery, if anyone is interested let me know.

I have also found the MyHeritage website for the Family Tree of Ricardo Salinas. He has many people from El Arcabuz including some of my family and ancestors. I have tried contacting him but unfortunately he has not responded to my messages.

People that lived in this town can also be found at Ancestry.com and FamilySearch on their Border Crossing Collections. I also tried searching the Mexico 1930 Census but it seems that all of the municipality of Miguel Aleman Tamaulipas Mexico is Mission from it.

Cemeteries of Starr County, Texas

Are your ancestors from Starr County? If they are and you are currently doing research then this may be able to help you out. These are some resources when it comes to cemeteries in Starr County Texas.

Find A Grave -They Have 55 Recorded Cemeteries but many don’t have any listings yet.

US Gen Web Project - Lists Cemeteries compiled by David Moreno up until May of 2011 and also has a link to a pdf file that he has created listing almost if not all the cemeteries in Starr County Texas.

Ramon and Ponciano Salinas Flores Land Purchase of Porcion 39

The following is a 1910 translation of a property deed made in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico on October 9, 1888. Where my wife’s great-great-grandfather Ramon Salinas Flores and his brother Ponciano Salinas Flores bought 106 Varas by 25,000 Varas from several of their relatives. The land was originally part of portion 39 Land Grant that was owned by their great-grandfather Jose Antonio Flores. Some of the land from this purchase still continues to be owned by their descendants. It is also important to note that Ponciano and Ramon are listed as residing in San Miguel de Camargo, wich is present day Dias Ordaz, Tamaulipas. Diaz Ordaz is in front of Los Ebanos, Texas. This document also indicates that both Ponciano and Ramon were both merchants.
