It’s collection of books concerning South Texas and Northeastern Mexico is superb and in my opinion unrivaled. What is not known to many people is that the University houses Baptism, Marriage, and Death Church Records for Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico.
See my previous post for more information about Reynosa Marriages from 1790 to 1810 which contains a link to where you can browse them online.
The following Reynosa Church Records can be obtained on microfilm;
- Reynosa Baptismals, 1800-1912
- Reynosa Marriages, 1811-1823
- Reynosa Deaths, 1837-1845
- Reynosa Deaths, 1859-1860
They are part of the Frank Cushman Pierce Collection which is microfilmed in two reels.
There is also another title that may be of interest to the researcher; Copia de Bautismos de la Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe de la Villa de Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico, 1801-1912.
Finally, Lee James Nichols has indexed the Reynosa Marriages for 1790 to 1810 in his book; Archivos parroquiales de Nuestra de Señora de Guadalupe de Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico : matrimonios vol. #2, 7-1-1790 / 1-14-1811 / indexed by Lee James Nichols. I have seen this book and it is a great resource. If interested you can buy this book at Border Lands Bookstore it is item#717 and it costs $55.00
