Dolores, Revilla, and Laredo – Three Sister Settlements

While searching for a book at the University of Texas Pan American I came across this one titled “Dolores, Revilla, and Laredo – (Three Sister Settlements)” by Rogelia O. Garcia. It is a 51 page book that is very interesting. Especially if you have traced your ancestors to any of these three settlements as I have done for Revilla.

The author states:

“This small volume is the outgrowth of several years of research and is intended to commemorate the saga of the great and noble men and women who settled in the vast wilderness along the Rio Grande and left us a great heritage, their culture and ideals. The men of Dolores and Revilla were men of very liberal ideas, while those of San Augustin de Laredo were conservative. Their descendants are proud of them.” – Rogelia O. Garcia

The author also mentions that most of the information that you will find in this book comes form the;

  • Estado General de las Fundaciones Hechas por Don Joseph de Escandon en la Colonia del Nuevo Santander,
  • The Spanish Archives of Laredo,
  • The Archives of San Augustin Church,
  • The Papers of Mirabeau B. Lamar,
  • And other books relative to early Tamaulipas and Texas

Sephardic Genealogy Resources

Here is an excellent resource that Anna Martinez shared with me in order for me to share it with you. Thank’s Anna for sharing with us. As you may already be aware I recently received my DNA results and it came out 6% Jewish. I always knew that I had some Jewish ancestry due to the fact that many of my ancestors had been rumored to have been Sephardic Jews and many of them were also classified as new Christians. The resource that Anna shared with us was the a page on the sephardicgen.com website. Here is a screen shot of the website: You can visit the full website here:

Sephardic Genealogy links

Out of that website Anna recommended for me to share this particular page http://www.sephardicgen.com/crypto_sites.htm This particular page has many links to other resources were you will be able to find more about Sephardic Jews. I highly recommend that you take the time to check it out, that is if you are interested in this topic as I am.

If you have confirmed your Jewish ancestry either through documents or DNA testing let me know in the comments or on facebook. If interested in learning more about my DNA results please take the time to hear my latest podcast or read my blog post “Great news! My AncestryDNA results are in!“.
