This is the 1927 Civil Registration of Ygnacio Marroquin Gonzalez and for those that knew and loved him El Tio Nacho. Ygnacio was my grandmother’s, Dominga Marroquin, brother. As a young child I remember always going with my father to visit his uncle Tio Nacho at his ranch. He would always come out and greet us with a smile in his face and then chairs would be brought out and always coffee would be served. Then his wife would always prepare something to eat, no matter at what time of the day we might have dropped by, and boy you could not say no to their food since this would mean a lack of respect. As a kid I also remember helping him turn the spiga (grass looking thing to make brooms) a whole acre worth. Years latter maybe due to old age he moved into town (El Arcabuz, Tamauliaps, Mexico). We visited him several times with the last being about two years ago. He died this year on July 6, 2011 but due to the heavy violence that is plaguing Mexico was unable to attend. I am very glad that I was able to find this document.
