Last Names of Nuevo Leon

If your genealogy research has led you to Cadereyta, Nuevo Leon, Mexico then you are aware that many of it’s records have not been indexed by FamilySearch. But you are in luck www.eagleknight.com is a great resource when it comes to Cadereyta. They also have a great article about Paleography And Reading Spanish Genealogy Records. They have three books that are for sale that will help you in your research;

Genealogical Studies of Cadereyta Jimenez; Volume 1: With Complete Baptismal Extractions for 1806-1815

“This genealogy book includes 1,869 baptism records for the given period.
