User Inquiry – In Search of Her Grandfather, What to do Next



Hi, Leticia Segovia

In response to:

Hi Moises: I ran into your blog by accident. I to am trying to find my roots but have run into a problem. Maybe you can help or lead me in the right direction. My father was born in Nueva Rosita, Coahuila, but raised in Valley Hermoso, Tamalipas (from about 1938 to 1950). My problem is that I find no information on my grandfather (almost if he didn’t exist). I did find lots of cousins & many who still live in Valle Hermoso, Tamalipas but no grandfather. Any ideas as to what I should do next?
Thanks & hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks for your inquiry: have you looked at the following link at familysearch for:

Mexico, Coahuila, Civil Registration, 1861-1998

Nueva Rosita is not listed but just do a google map search to see which city is the biggest nest to it and start searching there. Also look at the following link

Mexico, Tamaulipas, Civil Registration, 1800-2002

This link contains mainly deaths but maybe you can find him there, that is if he died there. My last suggestion is that you ask your living relatives for any information or leads and take it from there. Maybe someone has documents or photos.

Good Luck in your search,

Moises Garza
