User Request – Andrew Garza or Salazar, More Information Needed

I received this request a couple of days ago from Anna Garza Rosamond and just hope that by posting it someone may be able to have an answer.

Hi. My name is Anna Garza Rosamond. I am trying to find my father’s family. He was born in Matamoros, Tamaulipas sometime around 1900-1905. He used the name Andrew Garza after coming to the US as a child, but I know that was not his birth surname. The truth is we just don’t know as he kept this info from all his children. My older sister once claimed his surname was Salazar and my brother recently took a Y-DNA test through Family Tree DNA and the only high level match for him was to a Flavio Salazar. So far this Mr. Salazar has not responded to any of our queries. I have pictures of my father’s parents whose names I don’t know, but I know he had two sisters, probably named Celia and Lilia. I also have photos of some of his family taken in either Matamoros or Monterrey in the late 1950s. I will be glad to forward the pictures to anyone who thinks they might be able to identify them. Any help that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

If anyone has any answers or suggestions write them on the comment area of this page or send me an email and I will forward it to Anna.

1925 Birth Index of Congregacion Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico

Here is the image and transcription to the 1925 Congregacion Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico birth Index. The front page of the book indicates that it is a copy of the originals. In 1925 Congregacion Arcabuz belonged to the municipality of Mier and the Civil Registry was established to serve that region since Ciudad Mier is almost twenty miles away and at that time transportation would have had been a challenge.

Tamaulipas, Mexico Civil Registration, 1800 – 2002

Are your ancestors from the Mexican state of Tamaulipas? Do you have a brick wall? If the answer to both of these questions is yes then the Civil registration records may be of great help to you. They cover the time period from 1800 to 2002 but most of them only start in the 1860′s when it was mandatory that the local government start to keep records of births, deaths, and marriages. This collection is available for free at familysearch.org and it was published online back in November 22, 2011.

Original post

About a month ago FamilySearch placed the Nuevo Leon Civil Registry images online and in a few hours I had great results with them. Then I wished that they would publish the Tamaulipas ones. Then on 22 Nov 2011 they did it. I am super happy since it includes most of the towns from my Maternal and Paternal sides and not to mention also my wife’s.

Towns of interest to me:

  • Arcabuz
  • Miguel Aleman
  • Camargo
  • Gustavo Dias Ordaz (used to be called San Miguel de Camargo)
  • Mier
  • Reynosa

This collection helped me find whom my second great grandparents through my mothers maternal side were. All this happened when I found the Civil record of the 1916 marriage of my great grandparents in Ciudad Mier. The key to finding records is finding the index of each year, usually at the end or the beginning of that particular year’s documents.

I know that many of the readers of this blog already know about this collection but if you are new to researching your family genealogy or history you definitely have to check this collection out.

Enjoy,

I’ll be posting some transcriptions very soon!
