Genealogical Database of Solo Genealogia

 While researching my own family genealogy I came across a database that I had not come across before. It contained great information and not to mention I got many new clues as to where to search for documents.

If it was helpful to me, I think it can also be of help to you. The name of this database is called Solo Genealogia and it is being run and maintained by Jesus A Chacon.

 It is mentioned in the main page in Spanish that:

This compilation is based on information taken from parish registers and genealogical works including references. We welcome any comments, suggestions or modifications necessary in order to show the correct information. We greatly appreciate all those who have contributed to this database.

To test it out just enter de la Garza to get an idea of what information you can find in this database. It may be a long shot but enter your ancestors names to see if they come up.

Texas Land Records, A Great South Texas Genealogy Resource

I found this awesome resource when it comes to Texas Land information. If you have not heard about this great resource you are in for a treat.

On the following website you can expect to find:

  • Texas Land Titles
  • Deeds
  • Affidavits of heirship

and much more.

This resource is the Texas Land Records Real Property Records Search. You can find it online at www.texaslandrecords.com. It contains a lot of counties but for some of them you have to pay in order to be able to search or view images.

Luckily for me Hidalgo County is free to search and view images. Once you find a record you can even download it to your computer.

There are two requirements for Hidalgo county is that you have to signup but it is free to do so, and also install a TIFF reader, but once you do it you won’t regret it.

After playing for a few days with it I am still amazed at the wealth of genealogical information I found and not to mention downloadable copies of original court documents.

Give it a try, once again the website is www.texaslandrecords.com.
