Families of Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico Volume Ten

If you are into genealogy as I am, then you may have had been waiting for this eBook from Crispin. Without fail Crispin has, with this one, published 10 eBooks straight. I had the pleasure and honor of meeting Crispin Rendon on the 35th Annual Texas Hispanic Genealogical and Historical Conference. He is a very down to earth person and hates to get credit for all that he does.

This tenth volume contains another 500 records starting on 1795 to 1800 and Crispin mentions that you can find images 135-212 on film 605096 at familysearch.org.

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.

The 58 Families Listed on the 1757 Census of Revilla/Guerrero

The following is a list comprising of the 58 families listed on the 1757 Census of Revilla/Guerrero. This census was part of areport done by Captain Jose Tienda de Cuervo where he provides information on the General State of the Villas del Norte which had been founded by Jose de Escandon years earlier.

It is interesting to not that even-though at the end of the Revilla census it is listed that only 58 families reside there I found that a total of 60 entries were done. Somehow the two single persons listed living by themselves were not counted as families.

I was also disappointed to find that the names of the children, servants, and slaves were no written. In total 300 people were counted. The following list only contains the names of the father and mother.  Continue reading
