There are not many South Texas and Northeastern Mexico Genealogy blogs out there and coming across one is pretty exciting.
If you have not done so yet I highly recommend that you check John Wilmot’s Blog JOHN WILMOT’S GENEALOGY NOTEBOOK.
Mr. Wilmot describes his blog as:
This blog was created simply to share the many notes and documents I gather in the course of my personal research, much of which turns out to be unrelated to my own ancestry. Since they would otherwise be sitting in a file folder, I’m hoping that posting them here instead will help others along.
Mr. Wilmot’s blog has posts about family and ancestors from the the following South Texas Counties:
- Cameron Co., TX
- Hidalgo Co., TX
- Starr Co., TX
He also has posts about family and ancestors with the following last names:
- General Teran, NL
Northeastern towns or cities mentioned on his blog:
- Burgos, Tamps.
- General Teran, NL
- Montemorelos, NL
- Monterrey, NL
I just hope that you do visit his blog since you never know you may just find your relatives. Once again you can visit his blog Here: JOHN WILMOT’S GENEALOGY NOTEBOOK.
