Yldefonso Zamora Mendoza – 1887 Civil Registration Birth Record, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

I was searching for the birth record of Cesareo Lopez my great-grandfather in the Mier Civil Registry at FamilySearch and instead came across my other great-grandfathers birth record. All I had for him was his name and names of his parents. I had originally assumed that he ans his parents were from Zacatecas Mexico but turns out they are not. I had previously written a post about his mother Paula Mendoza and had found her parents, who were from Zacatecas/Jalisco and now this document indicates that they may have had been from Guadalajara. But I had completely no information on his father Gabino Zamora. Well now I have his parents names Fernando Zamora and Marta Garza, and it also indicates that they were from Cadereyta Jimenez, Nuevo Leon. I’ll be posting latter on on my research about these families.

I have done it!! So far So Good.

As I mentioned before, I had bought Family Tree Maker Deluxe but was kind of alien to me. After a couple of days it has started to grow on me. I just thought and let you all know about it. Also I would like to get any tips on using it or hear how this software has helped you guys out. I currently started my Family Tree again from scratch, with the golden rule being never add anyone without at least one citation. I started with my kids and will work all the way back until supporting documentation allows it. I have not dumped Family Tree Builder since it will be my research/leads database. Now back to talking about the software.

What I like.

The main feature that I like is that I can create my own facts and manage them and attach any type of media to them.

What I do not like.

Unfortunately, what I do not like so far is that I have to crop my images to make them portrait like to assign them to that person. I don’t know if I am explaining my self correctly or not but I expected something like Family Tree Builder where you could select several faces out of one picture. Maybe I am doing it wrong.

I hope I don’t give up on it. 


If you are interested you can buy it here too.

Paula Mendoza Mireles – 1932 Civil Registry Death Record, Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico

This is the death record of Paula Mendoza, one of my brick walls. Did I say brick walls? Well thanks to this record she is no longer one of my brick walls. Paula Mendoza is my great-great-grandmother for whom I had not been able to find her parents but the following document clearly indicates that her fathers name was Tiburcio Mendoza and her mother’s name was Lorenza Mireles. It also indicates that they were from Zacatecas. Through a bit more research I found out that they were form a small town named Ojuelos, Zacatecas, Mexico. More research pending.  :  )

Unfortunately, since I am using a blogger website I could not black out my website without making major changes. I’ll be displaying this image instead as my blog’s banner in support of the movement until the 24th when congress votes on this issue. Take a stand it affects all of us! Write to your Congressman.

Martin Garza Garcia – 1929 Civil Registration Death Record, Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico

I had no idea that I would ever come across this document since Martin Garza my great-great-grandfather was born in Jan 30 1837. Good thing he lived to the great old age of 92. With this document I also found another one of his sons that I didn’t even know he had. Nicolas Garza. My uncle had told me that Martin does have a head stone at the cemetery but he forgot to tell me which one. This document also indicates that he was buried in the Cemetery of Congregacion Arcabuz.
