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.

The following is one of the old blog banners that I used to have. I am seriously thinking of remaking the banners to fit this blog and post them again. If I do you will probably see them up by next week.

To be honest with you I do not have many family pictures and that is something that I am trying to obtain. I don’t need originals as long as they let me scan them I am happy. Hopefully I get to share them in this blog as I get more.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope that you may find this website informative and useful.
Why I started this blog:
Welcome to We Are Cousins, after much thought I saw the need to create a blog that would not only serve as a place to document my research, family stories, but also a resource to those interested in South Texas and Northern Mexico Genealogy. I also hope that with this blog I can network with other researchers interested in this region. To keep up to date with this blog simply subscribe to the rss atom feed.
This quote was the content of my first post on this website and honestly I was super nervous. I guess it is the same nervousness that always goes hand in hand when we start a new project. Let me just tell you that this blog has turned out to be more than what I expected and a very rewarding experience.
What to you can expect to find in this blog.
As mentioned before this blog is about South Texas and Northeastern Mexico Genealogy. It focuses on Genealogy South of San Antonio, the Mexican states of Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas.
Here you will find,
- Baptism Transcriptions

Also expect to find many other randoms things but the above mentioned ones are just the main ones.
