Archivos Historicos de Monterrey – Historical Archives of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

Just thought and let you all know about a cool resource that I just found. I have been playing with it and have found several documents on some of my ancestors. Unfortunately, most of it are indexes and not the original documents. In order to see the original we would have to travel to Monterrey or get a local genealogist to get it for us.

Here is the link,

I have mostly been finding documents dated between 1680 to 1720′s. Have fun, I will be posting some of the stuff I find in latter posts. Enjoy!!

Almost forgot, don’t be misguided by the name it contains documents on what used to be Nuevo Reino de Leon which includes Tamaulipas and South Texas. It also contains documents in French and English.
