Padrones "Census" of Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico Catholic Church 1782 through 1826

Padrones are basically Church Census and these are for the parish of the Immaculate Conception of Ciudad Mier.

I came across this great resource by accident and it had been under my nose for so long. It is really a treasure to see these documents, I have been viewing them for over two weeks and still have not even scratched the surface of documenting it.

If you have ancestors in this area of Tamaulipas and have found families living here during the period of 1782 through 1826 you have to check this out. Mier Church Padrones for 1782 – 1826 pages 366 – 701.  I guarantee that you will more than likely find them listed there.

The first page describes what each letter denotes but it is very hard to read in some areas so I did not transcribe it. If someone is interested in doing so let me know and I can post it here.

Have fun with this great resource!!
