Last Names of Nuevo Leon
As the title states it, slow down. Many, many years ago something sparked and I have been doing genealogy research since then. I must have been blinded since I was just eager to find the next name and trying to go back as far back as possible. Well as previously mentioned I have decided to start my family tree from scratch using what I have available. With the primary goal being that every name or fact has to have a citation.

I am slowly evaluating the data and transcribing documents, I just cant believe how much information I was leaving out. I have slowed down by entering and focusing on one ancestor at a time.

Guess what I was even astonished to find out that on two of my ancestors I had the wrong parents for them and thus leading me to research many individuals that are not even my ancestors, major rookie mistake, but it is now fixed due to the reevaluation of my original documents. Oh Well, Live and Learn!
