Hernandez Hnos 50th Anniversary Commemorative Book

I just wanted to share with you an email that Bob Hernadez sent me about a month ago. I know that this email will be of interest to anyone that is interested in Monterrey Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Since the images that Bob shares with us are very valuable to our history. Specially if your genealogy research has led you to the convent of San Francisco, this album includes a photo of it. It also contains two maps of Monterrey one of 1836 and the other of 1905. It is also invaluable to the descendants of the Hernandez Brothers.

Album Conmemorativo del 50 aniversario de la fundacion de la casa de sucesores de hernadez hnos

Here is the email:

Hi Moises. Thanks for all you do, I really enjoy it.

Except for my mother’s side, namely the Ybarguens, who lived in Durango, DGO since the late 1600’s or before, some of my father’s side were “newcomers” to Mexico who came from the Basque Country and settled in Nuevo Leon about the mid-1800’s.

The first Carlist War in Spain in the late 1830’s caused my great grandfather’s brother, Mariano Hernandez Luengas, to set out for the New World. Eventually he found himself in Monterrey and invested with other Monterrey industrialists to form the earliest textile mills in Nuevo Leon. His brothers eventually arrived from Vizcaya and they formed a company known as Hernandez Hermanos, with operations in Monterrey, Matamoros, Nuevo Laredo, Brownsville and Lerdo, DGO. They had a store in Monterrey known as La Reinera, with the 1905 building still standing at the corner of Morelos and Paras.

I found your website via a reference to one of my images from this post:

http://www.wearecousins.info/2013/01/location-of-convent-of-san-francisco-monterrey-an-email-from-george-p-cervantes/

The particular reference is only part of a larger photo album / book printed in 1905 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Hernandez Hermanos company. In there, you will see historical maps and photos of Monterrey, plus a written history of the company.

You can find the entire set here:

(you may need to scroll down to see the original captions that are not a part of the images). Your readers may enjoy the various images if they are interested in Monterrey history.

Again, thanks for what you do.

I wonder if any of my ancestors ever bought or wore clothes made with the textiles that this company would make. If you are interested in contacting bob let me know, I can forward your message to him. Let us know in the comments section of this post what you liked about this resource/album.

1702 Church Marriage of Cristobal Guerra Canamar and Nicolasa de Trevino in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico

The following image is the record of the 1702 marriage of my 7th great grandparents Cristobal Guerra Canamar and Nicolasa de Trevino in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They married in February 26, 1702. The following document unfortunately does not mention their parents names but through other documents we have come to find out that Cristobal’s Parents are Ignacio Guerra Canamar and Catalina Fernandez de Tijerina. The parents of Nicolasa are Francisco Baez de Trevino and Catalina de Amaya.

Also this document also lists another of my ancestors as a witness to the marriage. My 9th great grandfather Nicolas Lopez Prieto. Finally it also mentions that a church dispensation was done due to them being related by four degrees of consanguinity. Now I have to try and find this marriage dispensation since it will offer more valuable information and clues.

Familias de Monterrery Sus Descendientes Tomo II

 This is the second volume by Guillermo Garmendia Leal about the founding families of Monterrey and their descendants. It was written back in 1993 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon Mexico. If you have traced your ancestors all the way to these founding families then this book will be an excellent resource for your research. Just be aware that the author mentions that he left out two families. One was the family of Diego de Montemayor and the other the one of Laonso de Leon.

In the book the author states that he will focus special attention to these two and will have their own book. Years later he did publish a book for each. You can read more about the one for Diego here Diego de Montemayor Sus Decendientes – Diego de Montemayor and His Decendants.
