Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Bellow you will find the 1949 school picture of La Palmita, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. I came across it couple of years ago when a coworker Martin Ramos asked me about genealogy and he told me that his family was originally form La Palmita and that he had a book that he wanted to share with me. That book was “La Palmita Muerte Entre Las Lomas” by Armando Leal Rios. It is form that book that I share the following information with you.
