I came across a very interesting book that was published back in 1873 by Alejandro Prieto. It does mention several of my ancestors but most important it contains important information about the state of Tamaulipas. The title of the book is Historia, Geografia y Estadistica Del Estado De Tamaulipas”. You never know you may just find your ancestors in this book.
This book can be valuable when it comes to our genealogy research since it may provide you with additional clues as to where to look for documents and also a window as to what our ancestors may have had experience politically.
