Have you traced your family back to Nuevo Leon. If so this book may be of interest to you. This book “Apellidos de Nuevo Leon” was originally written by Tomas Mendirichaga Cueva and transcribed into “Last Names of Nuevo Leon” by Edna Garza Brown back in 1989.
The last names that the author goes into detail are:
- Botello and Buentello – This family tree starts with Capitan Don Juan Buentello Guerrero
- Cavazos – This family tree starts with Capitan Juan Cavazos
- Guerra – This one starts with Ignacio Guerra Canamar
- Hinojosa – Tree starts with Diego de Hinojosa
- Larralde – Starts with General Francisco de Larralde
- Mier – This tree starts with Francisco de Mier Noriega
- Sepulveda – Tree starts with Don Jacinto and Don Bernardo de Sepulveda
- Zambrano – Tree starts with Nicolas Zambrano
With the exception of Mier, Zambrano and Larralde all of the above mentioned last names are in my family tree.

The author provides sound documentation as to when and where the last name first appeared in any type of documents.

Are We Primos (cousins)?
If Jose Antonio Cavazos is also your ancestor please let me know with a comment.
If you do have a Cavazo’s connection you might be interested in attending this Sunday to the presentation hosted by the Rio Grande Valley Hispanic Genealogical Society. The presentation will be titled “Do You Have a Cavazos Connection?”. I bet you do since this last name is very popular in Northeastern Mexico and South Texas.
The presentation will be conducted by members of the RGVHGS, Carlos Cantu, Dr. Alonzo Cavazos, and Irene Silva. I do know that they are compiling family trees to try and link up everyone that may be a Cavazos descendant, but if you want to find out you will need to attend in person.
The presentation will be at the Harlingen public Library this coming June 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM. I already made arrangements to be present. Have you?
Let me know if you are attending, I would love to meet you in person and chat about your research.

The following marriage record is of my 3rd great grandparents Narsizo Perez and Juana Francisca Tamez finally brought down a two year brick wall. Turns out that familysearch had the microfilm needed but unfortunately they only digitized half of the roll. I had contacted them over a year ago and was told that the problem had been forwarded to their engineers I know I could have just ordered the film but the problem was that there is no familysearch library near me so that was out as an option. Tomorrow I’ll be posting about and recommending the person that got this image for me. For now lets talk about this image. Fortunately for me this image provided me with the parents of Narsizo as being Anselmo Perez and Rita Rodriguez and the parents of Juana Tamez as Pablo Tamez and Ygnacia Cavazos. If anyone has the same ancestors as me please contact me would love to trade information.
