Land Grants, Farms, Villages, Villas, and Cities in the Northeast of New Spain

The following map will help you along while doing your families genealogy research. It is titled “Land Grants, Farms, Villages, Villas, and Cities in the Northeast of New Spain” means in Spanish (Mercedes de Tierras, Haciendas, Pueblos, Villas y Ciudades en el Noreste Novohispano). As I have mentioned before I am currently researching Saltillo and in a book titled “Libro del Cabildo de la Villa de Santiago del Saltillo”, (Book of the Council of the Village of Santiago del Saltillo), I came across a very interesting map that I know you will enjoy. I am sharing it with you here since i know that it will help you estimate where your ancestors were from, it will not pinpoint their exact place but give you an idea.

This image shows you an estimated location of where the following areas were located:

  • Valle de Boca de Leones
  • Valle de Coahuila
  • Valle de las Salinas
  • Villa Cerralvo
  • Valle de Pesqueria
  • Valle de Parras
  • Saltillo
  • Valle de Buena Esperanza
  • Valle de Mazapil
  • Valle de Pesqueria Grande
  • Valle de Santa Catarina
  • Villa Cadereyta

It also lists many more villas, towns, and haciendas.

Families of Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico Volume Four

Crispin Rendon released his fourth eBook on the Families of Saltillo, Coahuila yesterday afternoon. I am always trilled to get to see any of Crispins new eBooks. Specially the ones for Saltillo since lately thanks to him I have been finding many ancestors from that area, thus making my genealogy research easier. As a consequence I have shifted a great part of my current research to Saltillo.

The following eBook contains 500 records of church marriages and their families. It covers the years 1749 to 1757 and is 530 pages. Don’t worry you don’t have to go one by one you can just search for your ancestors using the index at the end of the book or use CTRL+F to do a quick search.
