Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the 1881 index image of marriages of the Civil Registry of Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon Mexico. Please note that the official at that time just listed the names that appeared on that year by male or female and in alphabetical order. I listed them in male and female columns and wrote their last name followed by first name.

Cut out of Original Image:

FamilySearch > Mexico, Nuevo León, Civil Registration, 1859-1962 > Los Aldamas > Matrimonios 1881-1901 Pages 1 -34
