WeAreCousins Has Started a Forum on South Texas and Northeastern Mexico Genealogy

Starting today WeAreCousins will have a forum. You can view it at WeAreCousins Forum or just click on the top menu where it says forum.

I strongly recommend that you sign up and start posting requests, photos, stories, and ask for help about your own Genealogy brickwalls. You never know someone out there may have what you need or you may have what they need. You may ask yourself, Why a forum? I think a forum is a great way to create an online community interested in South Texas and Northeastern Genealogy.

A community that can help each other do research and also a place where new people, to genealogy, can get tips and advised from more experiensed researchers. If you are interested in becoming an administrator let me know. I will be on the forum at nights and on weekends to help anyone, these are the times that I have time to do it. See you there.

I hope that you all find it useful.

Website, History and Genealogy of South Texas and Northeast Mexico

When I started to do Genealogy research and also look into South Texas and Northeastern Mexico Genealogy I always came across Guillermo Guerra’s Website  at VSALGS.org. It contains alot of information about South Texas, Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, and Cohuila. I highly recommend that everyone interested in this area check it out.

The only problem that I have noticed is that he has not updated it since 2004, but most of the information is timeless and still very relevant.

Here are some quick links for his website:

South Texas
Tamaulipas
Nuevo Leon
Surnames
Guillermo Guerra’s Personal Family Database

Have fun browsing this great resource.

User Request – Felipe Perez and Eduvijes Salinas

I received the following message on May the 14, I just someone out there can help out.

hello,
I am trying to find out some information about my great-great-great grandmother her name was Eduvijes Salinas (not sure if I spelled her name correctly) and she was married to Felipe Perez. They had several children: Gregorio, Francisca, Eligio, Tomasa and Virginia.  I was able to find a marriage for them in Starr, Texas on the 28th of May 1878 however I have not had any other luck locating any other information.  One of their children Gregorio Perez was married to Virginia Garza on the 12th of March 1880 in Hidalgo county Texas USA (marriage sources for both Eduvijes/Felipe & Gregorio/Virginia are from familysearch) Virginia Garza is my great-great grandmother who I also have had no luck finding any information on her family.  Most of my family lived in south Texas. any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help. R. Rios

If anyone has any information please email R. Rios at rrios1213@yahoo.com

Manuel Marroquin Valdez and Guadalupe Rodriguez Silva, 1830 Church Marriage in Santiago de Guajuco, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

This is the 1830s Church marriage record of my 3rd great grandparents, Manuel Marroquin and Guadalupe Rodriguez. Manuel Marroquin was the son of Juan Jose Marroquin and Maria Gertrudis Valdez. Guadalupe Rodriguez was the daughter of Jose Antonio Rodriguez and Maria Ygnacia Silva. This document is vey interesting since it indicates that they are related by 3rd and 2nd grades of consanguinity, meaning that they were related. Manuel’s maternal grandmother was Maria Antonia Rodriguez and might be related to Guadalupe’s father Jose Antonio Rodriguez. Unfortunately I have not been able to find the grandparents of Guadalupe Rodriguez in order to have a clearer picture of there relation.

Jose Domingo Trevino and Maria Elena Pena 1827 Church Marriage, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the 1827 Church marriage record of my 4th great grandparents Jose Domingo Trevino and Maria Elena de la Pena. I have yet to find either of their parents, but it is interesting that the document indicated that he was a widow. Hopefully this could lead to other documents. If anyone out there has any information on them let me know. The document also states that both of them were neighbors from “el Alcabus” meaning Arcabuz.
