The 200th Anniversary of the First Republic of Texas
Join us as we celebrate with music, songs and lectures!
The 200th anniversary of the founding of the First Constitutional Government of Texas will be celebrated on Saturday April 6th 2013 at 10 AM at the Spanish Governors Palace in San Antonio.
On August 7th 1812 Bernardo Gutierrez de Lara and Augustus Magee cross the Sabine River flying the Emerald Green Flag of Liberty; and it would fly over Texas for a year and 11 days. On April 6th 1813, after a year of bloody warfare Gutierrez de Lara declared our independence. This was a real revolution, a revolution of the people, by the people and for the people.
Short lived it may have been, never the less Texas was a Republic with a written Declaration of Independence and a written Constitution.
Scheduled to speak will be City Councilman Carlton Soules, Judge Bob Perkins, Historian Robert Thonhoff, Dr Gilberto Hinojosa and other dignitaries. There will be a special guest appearance by Little Joe from La Familia. Bill Millet PBS Documentarian will present “Texas before the Alamo,” which will premiere in Austin May 4th at the ESB Mexican American Cultural Center. This documentary is scheduled to air on PBS late Fall 2013.
Join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of our ancestors who fought and died in order to be free. Music provided by Los Tejano Cantantes and Eve Wallace singing songs of the 1800”s.This will be a historical and educational event with authors and historians as speakers. The event is free and open to the public. Feel free to bring lawn chairs.

Just wanted to let you know that I received earlier today the following email by Crispin Rendon.
This email is going out to everyone in my genealogy address book. There is no need to respond.
I have posted another volume online. Find a link below.
Families of Salinas Victoria, Nuevo Leon, Mexico Volume Three
This week, while doing research for additional Families of Santiago Nuevo Leon volumes, I came across something I had never seen before. I would like to share it with you here in a narrative form.
Maria Antonia Juana Flores Abrego was baptized on July 17, 1821 in Santiago, Nuevo Leon.
She was the oldest of three born to Pedro Flores Abrego and Maria Gertrudis Vallejo.
Pedro had been married before to Maria Josefa Lopez. Maria Gertrudis had seven children from her earlier marriage to Trinidad Prieto. After the death of Pedro, Maria Gertrudis marries a third time to Jose Angel Martinez and had a daughter with him.
This is where the story returns to Maria Antonia Juana Flores Abrego. Five months after her mother Maria Gertrudis Vallejo dies, Maria Antonia (age 18) marries her Step-father Jose Angel Martinez. They had been granted a dispensation to marry.
Jose Felipe de La Pena will be a name that you will run into many times if you are researching the families of Ciudad Guerrero/Revilla, Mier, or Zapata county. His legacy to this areas genealogy research is immense with 20 books. He was an active genealogist and honored with the title of “Hidalgo” by the Bexar County Historical Commission for his contribution to family history in South Texas. Continue reading
