Have you traced your family back to Nuevo Leon. If so this book may be of interest to you. This book “Apellidos de Nuevo Leon” was originally written by Tomas Mendirichaga Cueva and transcribed into “Last Names of Nuevo Leon” by Edna Garza Brown back in 1989.
The last names that the author goes into detail are:
- Botello and Buentello – This family tree starts with Capitan Don Juan Buentello Guerrero
- Cavazos – This family tree starts with Capitan Juan Cavazos
- Guerra – This one starts with Ignacio Guerra Canamar
- Hinojosa – Tree starts with Diego de Hinojosa
- Larralde – Starts with General Francisco de Larralde
- Mier – This tree starts with Francisco de Mier Noriega
- Sepulveda – Tree starts with Don Jacinto and Don Bernardo de Sepulveda
- Zambrano – Tree starts with Nicolas Zambrano
With the exception of Mier, Zambrano and Larralde all of the above mentioned last names are in my family tree.

If you do have a Cavazo’s connection you might be interested in attending this Sunday to the presentation hosted by the Rio Grande Valley Hispanic Genealogical Society. The presentation will be titled “Do You Have a Cavazos Connection?”. I bet you do since this last name is very popular in Northeastern Mexico and South Texas.
The presentation will be conducted by members of the RGVHGS, Carlos Cantu, Dr. Alonzo Cavazos, and Irene Silva. I do know that they are compiling family trees to try and link up everyone that may be a Cavazos descendant, but if you want to find out you will need to attend in person.
The presentation will be at the Harlingen public Library this coming June 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM. I already made arrangements to be present. Have you?
Let me know if you are attending, I would love to meet you in person and chat about your research.
