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!“.

Your Genealogical Family Tree on the Palm of Your Hand

I am pretty sure that by now you already know that Ancestry let’s you put your family tree online for free. Just make sure to change the privacy settings if you do not want to share your tree with everyone. I have mine set to private and have my online family tree linked to Family Tree Maker on my computer. The synchronization of both is seamless and very easy.

Honestly at the beginning I only had my tree online for back up purposes but since then I have also invited other people to contribute and see my tree online. Ancestry makes this very easy. What is great about having your tree online is that it is a free service from Ancestry. If you don’t have Family Tree Maker you can just upload your Gedcom file and it will only take a few minutes for it to appear. Continue reading

Vecinos de Cerralvo 1630 – 1760, Guillermo Garmendia Leal


Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico was founded as early as the 1590′s but the church and civil records were either lost or destroyed up until 1761. As Mr. Garmendia states, this means that the documents up to eight generations or more are forever gone.

In his book Vecinos de Cerralvo Mr. Garmendia compiled the names of people that where from Cerralvo from 1630 to 1760. He obtained them from every surrounding town’s archive or church records.

If your research has lead you to Cerralvo during this time period this book is worth checking out.

The University of Texas Pan American has a copy and if you would like you cna buy the booka t http://www.borderlandsbooks.com for $45.00.

1930 Mexico National Census – Free at Ancestry.com

Part of Image from Ancestry.com

The 1930 Mexican Census is available for free at ancestry.com

I already found family in the area around Los Ramones, Nuevo Leon and obtained some images. Will you find yours? I am sure that you will since this census has been labeled as the most important census of the 20th century with over 90% of the population participating.

It includes over 12.8 Million names and all of them have been indexed at Ancestry.com and are available for immediate search.

Unfortunately, I could not locate any family in the Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas area, since the whole Municipio of Miert appears to be missing. It is very likely that either they were not counted or the pages were somehow missing.

I also could not locate ancestors In the Diaz Ordaz area. I need to do further research to find out why, I just hope the information is there and the problem is me.

Well happy hunting, as for me I am still diving into it.
