The Conquistadores and the Crypto-Jews of Monterrey

While conducting Genealogy Research I came across “The Conquistadores and the Crypto-Jews of Monterrey” by David T. Raphael. It turned out to be an excellent book. It is full of great genealogical information, many of my own ancestors are mentioned within it’s pages. there is even a whole chapter dedicated to my 11th great grandfather Diego de Montemayor. Another whole chapter is dedicated to my de la Garza ancestors.

What I really loved about this book was Gaspar de Castanos entry into New Mexico and his brush with the Pueblo Indians. It is in my opinion an amazing chapter that shows clearly  a first hand account of how the Spaniards with way less numbers than the local population would conquer them.

After reading this book it is now one of my favorite. It not only provides great information but also contains transcriptions of original documents. You may also want to pay attention to the citations since that will Continue reading

Slaves of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

The Mexican Genealogical eBook Slaves of Monterrey Nuevo Leon Mexico is, as it’s cover describes it, a compilation of Hundreds of Notary Documents Translated by: Dahlia Rose Guajardo, Dhlia Palacios, Eusebio Benavidez, Tony Vincent Garcia and Crispin Rendon.

It is a sad thing that Spaniards had slaves but what is even sadder to me is to see my own ancestors buying and selling slaves as if they were property. You might also find your ancestor as being one of the slaves. The majority of the slaves were either Black or Mulattos.

It is not mentioned in this book but one of my ancestors was a Morisco meaning that his parents were Mulatto and Indian.  A Mulatto is the designation given to children of  a Spaniard and black African. The earliest mention of him is In Ciudad Mier in the middle of the 1700′s and this eBook makes me wonder if he or his family were ever slaves. Continue reading
