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.

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
Here is the listing of Crispin’s Rendon monumental work on General Teran, Nuevo leon, Mexico. They are 16 links to the 16th part series of Familias de General Teran. This series has been invaluable to my genealogy research since my wife’s Perez ancestors were from General Teran and it’s surrounding ranches.
I highly recommend that you download them to your eBook library. Continue reading
The following is the marriage of my wife’s 3rd great grandparents Jose Tomas Perez and Maria Francisca De Allala they got married back in 1837 in Valle De La Mota, present day General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The following document is very interesting since it mentions that Tomas was from the city of Monterrey and that he was the Widow of Juliana Maldonado and it also states that Maria Francisca was also the widow of Nicolas Cantu. If anyone has more information on them please let me know. Also I did my best transcribing the document since as you can tell it is kind of hard to see the letters. You can see the image used for transcription here See Original.

The following is the 1811 Baptism record for my wife’s 3rd great grandmother Maria Francisca de Allala (Ayala) Chapa. She was the daughter of Andres de Allala and Maria de Jesus Chapa. Her paternal grandparents are listed as Ysidro Allala and Maria Ynes Gonzalez. Unfortunately for me the document lists that they failed to provide information for maternal grandparents. Maria Francisca was married to Tomas Perez.

Stakeholder 2012 Genealogy Year End Report,
The database has grown to over 271,000 records, up 33,000 records from the year 2011. Over 600 records, on average, were added weekly. Some of these records came from the research required to complete the sixteen volume series on the Families of General Teran, Nuevo Leon. That series blossomed into an attempt to create genealogies for every one of the thousands of couples that were married in the General Teran Catholic Church for a period of over 100 years. The research for the published three volume Families of Santiago, Nuevo Leon series and the research for the yet to be published nine volume series Families of Salinas Victoria, Nuevo Leon account for the bulk of the records added. Additional database records came from family trees submitted in return for ancestor reports. Those reports ranged in size from a three page 4-generation report to a 543 page 48-generation book. The number of ancestor reports rose from 59 in 2011 to 80 in 2012. Some ancestor books were converted from English into Spanish. One ancestor book was created for my Kindle reader. Not quantified, yet very important, are the countless corrections to the records some of which extended lines, others shortened lines and still others re-routed them. The introduction of my Top 20 mtDNA list was a huge success. Expect a similar list for y-DNA sometime in 2013.
I am thinking of converting the Slaves of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico book, which is in a pdf format, into a Kindle reader format and am interested in learning if there is any interest for it. If you read books with an electronic device other then a computer let me know what you think.
Thank you all for your support.
If interested you can download all of Crispin’s books on one of my previous posts DNA and Genealogical Books-Reports. Can’t wait for him to publish Families of Salinas Victoria, Nuevo Leon. Keep up the excellent work Mr. Rendon!
Jose Francisco Perez Lozano is my wife’s great-grandfather. He was the son of Encarnacion Perez Ayala and Dorotea Lozano Bosquez and was married to Paula Contreras. (View their Marriage Record Here)
The following is an image of his baptismal record in General teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico back in 1866.
His God parents are listed as being Doroteo Perez and Maria Carmen Perez. Jose Encarnacion had a brother named Dorotea and also a sister named Maria Carmen Perez. It is very likely that his god parents, aunt, and uncle are the same.
