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.  :  )
