Hi, I just wanted to share with you an email that I received from Crispin Rendon two days ago. It is his end of the year report and it is very interesting. Mr. Rendon’s work is truly a treasure to every one doing genealogy research.

This email is going out to the 516 people found in my genealogy address book (stakeholders).

Stakeholder 2013 Genealogy Year End Report

I am happy with 2013. It was a good year. The database has grown to over 303,000 records, up 32,000 records from the year 2012. Over 600 records, on average, were added weekly. Most of these new records come from the research required to produce the upcoming 12 volume series on the Families of Saltillo, Coahuila. Additional records came from the research required to publish 9 volumes of Families of Salinas Victoria, Nuevo Leon and volumes 4 and 5 of Families of Santiago, Nuevo Leon. The plan is to publish a Saltillo volume every month this year.  Some database records came from family trees submitted in return for ancestor reports. I very much Continue reading

65 Cuadernos Del Archivo de Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

The following is a list of the 65 Cuadernos Del Archivo de Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They are all in Spanish. These 65 eBooks are about the history, geography, and archaeology of the state of Nuevo Leon. I am sure that if you read all the titles you are sure to find one that will interest you. If you  re building a digital library I highly recommend that you download all of them. You never knwo when thwy will come in handy. As for me I have only read two of them # 25 EL CRONISTA ANONIMO by Israel Cavazos Garza, since it is about my 9th great grandfather Juan Bautista Chapa. The other one that I have read is #36 LA CATEDRAL DEL NUEVO REINO DE LEON by Aureliano Tapia Mendez, since many of my ancestors are buried there.

I know that these eBooks will provide you also with great historical context and also provide you with genealogical data and clues. Continue reading
