Inmaculad Concepcion Church Ciudad Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico

The church of Inmaculada Concepcion of Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico has played an immense role in my family’s history and now in tracing my Genealogy. I have traced over two hundred years of Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths through the records left behind by her priests. Here are some old pictures and some modern ones of this great church that up to this date is impacting the lives of the surrounding community as it has been doing since the 1700’s.

    Thank you so much for posting these pictures! I am looking at my family’s history and found that my Great Great Grandmother, Sara Romula Leal, was baptized at this chuch in 1870s.
    On a whim I googled ‘Inmaculada Concepción, Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico’ and your blog came up!
    I see that you have Guerra listed, too. Sara’s parents were Joaquina Guerra and Jose de los Santos Leal.
    Thank you again for giving me a visual of my history!

    I also came across your page while looking for information about Inmaculada Concepcion Church in Mier
    Tamaulipas in 1874. My 2x great grandfather, Ramon Longoria and my 2x great grandmother Santos Molina baptized great grandfather’s sister Tomasa Longoria in this church in 1869. Perhaps you have more information about other family members that you could share with me.
