Marriages of Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico: 1689-1822 During the Spanish Colonial Era is an excellent book for anyone researching their ancestry in Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico. I had come across this book about a year ago and honestly I have no idea why I had not shared it with you. This book is available free of charge at familysearch.org you can find the link towards the bottom of this post. This book was transcribed and translated by Mickey Garcia.
For those of you interested Mickey Garcia states on the preface the source for the book and it is as follows:
The marriage records in this book come from Microfilm Reel Number 0605139 of the Church of Latter DaySaints (LDS). In transcribing these records, I worked from microfilm prints of the file. It bears the title “Archivo de la Parroquia de Santiago Apostol en Monclova, Estado de Coahuila. Volume 1, Alios 1690-1782.” The military marriages are in Voume 2, “Aflos 1777-1822.”
