1899 Civil Registration birth of Jose Benito Gonzalez Guerra, Guardado de Arriba, Tamaulipas, Mexico

For years I had been searching for the parents of my 2nd great grandparents Andres Gonzalez and Nicolasa Guerra without much luck. That was until I found the following document for their son Jose Benito Gonzalez (great grand uncle). It is his 1899 Civil Registration Birth Record in Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. It lists his paternal grandparents as being Francisco Gonzalez and Antonia Salinas. It also lists his maternal grandparents as being Gorgonio Guerra and Felicitas Guerra.

1903 Baptism of Maria Isabel Trevino Trevino, Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

This is the baptism of my great gran aunt Maria Isabel Trevino Trevino, the daughter of Exiquio Trevino and Maria de Jesus Trevino my second great grandparents. What is neat about this document is that it lists her paternal grandparents as being Jose Guadalupe Trevino and Cesarea Hinojosa. It also lists her maternal grandparents as being Rafael Trevino and Maria de Jesus Barrera. This document also indicates that she was born in El Barrio, Nuevo Leon Mexico which is a small town near Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon, Mexico thus giving me more clues as to where they may have been from.
