Hi, Just wanted to let you know that Crispin Rendon has already released his second book on The Families of Salinas Victoria. I strongly recommend you download it and add it to your Genealogy library and preferred reader.
Here is the email that he sent me yesterday:
This email is going out to the 469 people in my genealogy address book.
There is no reason to respond.
Below find a link to another book I have posted on the web.
Families of Salinas Victoria, Nuevo Leon, Mexico Volume Two
You may notice the surnames Bermeo and Bermea.
I am sure it is the same family surname but have not decided to merge them.
I am leaning toward changing all of the Bermea to Bermeo.
As always thanks Mr. Rendon for another great Resource.
“Archivos Parroquiales de Nuetra Senora de Guadalupe Reynosa, Tmaulipas, Mexico Matrimonios Vol. 2 1790 -1811 ”
I know that I have already spoken of this book but I thought and I write a post about it, for those that are actively researching Reynosa records for their ancestors. This small about 30 page book has been invaluable in researching my wife’s family. Thanks to it I have found copies of original documents.
This book is available for viewing at the University of Texas Pan American and for those interested in buying it it is also available for purchase from the author through Border Lands Book Store item# 717.
Once you find your ancestors within he pages of this book I recommend you head over to my previous post; Online Digital Images of Reynosa Church Marriages from 1790 to 1810, Hosted by UTPA there you will find the link to the online images used to create the this book.
Finally, if you want more information about Reynosa Records you might want to check out another of my posts; Where to Locate Baptism, Marriage, and Death Church Records for Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

As of today every Saturday I will be posting a book that is about Genealogy or that can be used for Genealogy. Specially books that have to do with South Texas and Northeastern Mexico Genealogy. I just think it is a great way of letting everyone know of what books are out there. The following book is titled 1799 census of Villa de San Juan Bautista de Cadereyta del Nuevo Reyno de Leon : (present day Cadereyta Jimenez, N.L.). As the tile states this book is the 1799 Census of Present day Cadereyta Jimenez, N.L. and is an excellent book for anyone researching this area.
Ranchos y Haciendas Mentioned in this Census Page RANCHO DEL CAP ADERO 45 RANCHO DE sn JOSE DE LA HORMITA 48 RANCHO DE LAS ENRRAMADAS 49 RANCHO DEL PASO DEL MACHO 50 RANCHO DE LOS HORCONES 50 RANCHO DEL OBISPO 50 RANCHO DE LA CRUZ 79 HACIENDA DE Sta GERTRUDIS 83,84 HACIDNDA DEL CASTILLO 86 RANCHO DE LA VOQUlLLA 92 RANCHO DEL SAUZ 93 RANCHO DE SAN MATEO 93 RANCHO DE SANTANA 93 RANCHO DE LA BAGRIA 93,94 HACIENDA DE SN JOSE 95
As you can see this census is not just of the town of Cadereyta but of all surrounding communities as well.
Where to find Book:
- This book is available at the University of Texas Pan American
- Find book in a library near you: WorldCat
- Or you can buy book from Los Bexareños Genealogical And Historical Society
This book, I am sure is of great interest to many people whom have traced their ancestry all the way back to Diego de Montemayor. I highly recommend that if you have traced your ancestors to Northern Mexico or South Texas make sure and look for them in this book.
With this book I was able to link several lines to the same ancestor. I highly recommend you take a look at it if possible. It also contains several copies to original images, but it is mainly about 140 pages of names of one huge family tree.
The author of this great work is Guillermo Garmendia Leal and he compiled it in Monterrey Nuevo Leon back in 1993.
As with most books that I mention in this blog, this one is available at the University of Texas Pan American and you can see if it is available in their catalog. If you live in any other part of the U.S.A. and want to see if a local library has it just check Worldcat.
