I came across the following book by Guillermo Garmendia Leal while doing my own family genealogy research. It is called “Fundadores de Linares” (Founders of Linares). This book has come in very handy since some of my ancestors have deep roots to Linares, Nuevo Leon. I just thought it would be a good idea to share it with you so that you may at least be aware about this great resource in case that you also come across ancestors or have ancestors that were from Linares.
Cover of book “Fundadores de Linares”:
This book contains:
Chapter 1 – Events that happened from 1668 to 1715 in Montemorelos, Hualahuises and the surrounding area prior to the founding of Linares.
