1706 Church Marriage of Jose Antonio Salinas and Juana Garcia in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

The following is the 1706 marriage record of my 7th great grandparents Jose Antonio Salinas and Juana Garcia whom married in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The marriage date was April 26, 1706. Unfortunately this document does not indicate whom their parents were but through other sources we know that the parents of Antonio Salinas where Joseph Salinas and Micaela Camacho. I only know of Micaela father whom was Pedro Garcia and have yet to figure out whom her mother was. If you know let me know.

1702 Church Marriage of Cristobal Guerra Canamar and Nicolasa de Trevino in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

The following image is the record of the 1702 marriage of my 7th great grandparents Cristobal Guerra Canamar and Nicolasa de Trevino in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They married in February 26, 1702. The following document unfortunately does not mention their parents names but through other documents we have come to find out that Cristobal’s Parents are Ignacio Guerra Canamar and Catalina Fernandez de Tijerina. The parents of Nicolasa are Francisco Baez de Trevino and Catalina de Amaya.

Also this document also lists another of my ancestors as a witness to the marriage. My 9th great grandfather Nicolas Lopez Prieto. Finally it also mentions that a church dispensation was done due to them being related by four degrees of consanguinity. Now I have to try and find this marriage dispensation since it will offer more valuable information and clues.
