Eulalio Garza Lopez, 1927 Civil Registration Births of Congregacion Arcabuz Tamaulipas Mexico

As you all know, due to my last three posts, I have been transcribing the Birth Index from 1925 to 1930 of Congregacion Arcabuz, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Well in the 1927 I found three names too familiar to discard. They were Luciano, Eulalio, and Ofelia Garza. Eulalio is my paternal grandfather and Luciano his brother and Ofelia his sister. I never thought I would find my grandfather in this index since he was born in 1917. It can safely be assumed that the Mexican Revolution may have disturbed their daily lives. Specially anything that had to do with government or maybe Mier was just too far away. But why 1927 why not before, I guess this question will be unanswered. It is interesting to note that the document indicates as them being vecinos (neighbors) of Congregacion Arcabuz. They were probably already residing at Rancho El Ebanito, a good five to 8 miles away. Also let me note that Eulalio’s baptism document indicates that he was born in 1919, but I’ll go with the Civil Registration birth since I believe it to be more acurate. Before I continue to the 1928 Index here is the Image and transcription to Eulalio’s Civil Registration.
