Last Names of Nuevo Leon
This is the baptism of my great gran aunt Maria Isabel Trevino Trevino, the daughter of Exiquio Trevino and Maria de Jesus Trevino my second great grandparents. What is neat about this document is that it lists her paternal grandparents as being Jose Guadalupe Trevino and Cesarea Hinojosa. It also lists her maternal grandparents as being Rafael Trevino and Maria de Jesus Barrera. This document also indicates that she was born in El Barrio, Nuevo Leon Mexico which is a small town near Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon, Mexico thus giving me more clues as to where they may have been from.
