The following will be of great interest to anyone that is a descendant of Juan Bautista Chapa or is interested in the History of Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Texas. It is a 72 page eBook where Israel Cavazos Garza proves that the anonymous author of Historia del Nuevo Reino de León, desde 1650 hasta 1690 was none other than Juan Bautista Chapa.
I ran across it just by chance, but once I started to read it I could not put it down. As I always recommend, please download it to your digital library. Just bellow this post you will find the download link.
On the Genealogical aspect this eBook contains details about Juan Bautista Chapa and also whom his parents were and also lists all of his brothers. I won’t list those details here since I don’t want to spoil it for you. Continue reading

This series has been invaluable to my genealogy research since my wife’s Perez ancestors were from General Teran and it’s surrounding ranches.
I highly recommend that you download them to your eBook library. Continue reading

The following is the 1835 marriage of my 4th great grandparents Jose Juan Manuel Antonio Guerra and Maria del Refugio Gonzalez. They got married in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The only interesting thing that the following document indicates is that they had to get a dispensa for having a Second with Third and a Third with Fourth grades of consanguinity. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate these marriage dispensations. Through other docuemtn I have come to knwo that the parents of Manuel are Jose Ignacio Guerra and Maria Francisca Guadiano. The parents of Refugio are Rafael Gonzalez and Maria Manuela Guerra.
