Names of People in Second Blog Banner

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.

Photo 1                                                       Photo 2                                                Photo 3

This is the second banner that I used in this blog.

Photo 1: Photo circa 1980′s

Maria Dedar Flores Villarreal (my wife’s paternal grandmother)
Vicente Perez Contreras (my wife’s paternal grandfather)

Photo 2: Photo taken in Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas, Mexico in 1983.

Moises Garza Tanguma (me). Yes that is my baby picture.

Photo 3: Photo looks like color drawing circa 1970′s or earlier.

Juan Tanguma (Zamora) Tanguma (my maternal grandfather)
Maria Josefina Lopez Trevino (my maternal grandmother)

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.

South Texas and Northeastern Mexico Genealogy

Hi there,

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
  • Marriage Transcriptions
  • Death Record Transcriptions
  • Resources available for Genealogy Research
  • Books You should know about
  • Transcriptions to indexes of Vital Records

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