Last Names of Nuevo Leon
This is the image and transcription to the 1861 Baptism of my 2nd great grand uncle Jose Demetrio Tanguma. It was through him that I found the grandparents of my great grandfather Juan Tanguma. As you can see it is always good to do research on all the family members, you never know what you will uncover.
