Last Names of Nuevo Leon
It had been several years that had been searching for the names parents of my great grandmother Elena Tanguma. All I new was that according to my mother she only had a brother named Toribio Tanguma. A few weeks ago I found Toribio’s death record which provided me with an estimated birth year and my search began. I found the following document indicating that his parents ware Juan Tanguma and Leandra Ramirez. It also indicates that Juan’s parents are Hipolito Tanguma and Francisca Pena. Also that Leandra’s parents were Guadalupe Ramirez and Antonia Martinez.

Siendo Abuelos paternos de dicho nino el Ciudadano Hipolito Tanguma y Francisca Pena, y maternos los Ciudadanos Guadalupe Ramirez y la Senora Antonia Martinez. El comparesiente oyo leer esta y se conformo con ella en presencia de dos testigos que lo fueron los Ciudadanos Felipe Flores y Jose Maria Pena, el primero casado y el segundo soltero, mayores de edad y vecinos de esta, firmando conmigo un testigo, no haciendolo el comparesente y un testigo por no saber. Doy fe. Pablo Garcia, Urizan. = Una Rubrica Jose Maria Pena. – Una Rubrica.
