John Wilmot’s Genealogy Notebook

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:

  • Cano
  • Gamboa
  • General Teran, NL
  • Martinez
  • Rendon
  • Reyes
  • Rios
  • Rodriguez
  • Ruiz
  • Salazar
  • Serda
  • Serna
  • Valdez
  • Valenzuela
  • Villareal
  • Zamora

Northeastern towns or cities mentioned on his blog:

  • Burgos, Tamps.
  • General Teran, NL
  • Montemorelos, 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.

Hi there,

Thanks for dropping by and I hope that you may find this website informative and useful.

Why I started this blog:

Welcome to We Are Cousins, after much thought I saw the need to create a blog that would not only serve as a place to document my research, family stories, but also a resource to those interested in South Texas and Northern Mexico Genealogy. I also hope that with this blog I can network with other researchers interested in this region. To keep up to date with this blog simply subscribe to the rss atom feed.
This quote was the content of my first post on this website and honestly I was super nervous. I guess it is the same nervousness that always goes hand in hand when we start a new project. Let me just tell you that this blog has turned out to be more than what I expected and a very rewarding experience.
