Jose Gil Lopez and Anastacia Hinojosa, 1861 Church Marriage in Mier, Tamaulipas, mexico

The following is the 1861 Church Marriage record of my 3rd great grandfather Jose Gil Lopez to his second wife Anastacia Hinojosa. He was the son of Lorenzo Lopez and Barbara Rios. Thanks to a 1874 Census of Arcabuz I was able to find that he had married twice and thus found this document.

Photo Cutter 1.0 – A Simple No Fuss Image Cutter

Screen Shot of Program

Some times when scanning images the cropping function does not work properly and you end up with a big image that contains several images. Trying to cut them with a traditional image editor can be consuming. This is were this small and free little tool comes into play. Once you load an image and select the destination folder all you do is click the desired image on a corner and drag to the opposite corner and you get a perfect preview of the cut out and if you like it click save and repeat.

I also like to use this tool to help me cut out the records of my ancestors since as you know that an image obtained from family search may contain up to 10 different entries.

Another use that I have is when scanning books it is perfect to trim the unwanted margins of the scanned pages before reassembling it into a pdf document. Many of the images posted in this blog are cut out using this tool.

Well just wanted to let you know about this tool in case that you have not heard about it. If interested here is the down link.

Marriage of Jose Manuel Lopez and Maria Tomasa de La Garza, 1834 in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The following is the 1834 church marriage of my 3rd great grandparents Jose Manuel Lopez and Maria Tomasa de La Garza. Unfortunately this documented doe not indicate whom their parents are but it does contain some clues. First of all, from other documents we know that the parents of Maria Tomasa are Juan Jose de la Garza and Maria Gertrudis Cuellar. Now to the clues, this documented indicates that there is an Illicit Affinity in a Second degree, meaning that they were somehow related but not by blood. From research there is only one other Manuel Lopez that was married 7 years prior to Maria Cecilia de la Garza whom was Tomasa’s first cousin. This could only mean that the two Manuel’s are the same person whom married a cousin of his deceased wife and thus had to get a dispensation from the church. If I could only find the dispensation, that would let me know with certainty. The bad thing is also that on both marriages his parents are not listed. I sure need more research before I can be sure.

Recommended Book – Anales y Testimonios del Cantaro

Anales y Testimonios del Cantaro 1986 by Octavio Herrera Perez


If you are familiar with he history of Mier then you probably already figured the title out. El Paso del Cantaro used to be the name of Mier prior to it’s founding in 1753.

This book is very comprehensive in Mier’s history and it’s past international impact. Aside from the history contained in this book, its real treasure are the 101 transcriptions of documents found int eh archives of Mier.
It also contains all the names of the grantees of the Mier Porciones on both sides of the Rio Grande River. 
I almost forgot to mention all the Genealogical information contained within its pages. I can almost guarantee that if your ancestors lived in this area during the 1700′s they are more than likely mentioned in this book.
As with other books, this books printing was very limited but you can find a copy at the University of Texas Pan American in Ediburg Texas, in their Lower Rio Grande Valley Special Collection. That’s were I was able to get a hold of this book. Check your local University Library to see if they have a copy.
