Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Antigua Mision de Gudalupe de Los Hoyos is a book researched and written by Dr. Ruben Dario Pastrana Guerrero. I had the good luck of finding it at the University of Texas Pan American in Edinburg, Texas.

This book is an excellent read and is packed with local history and mainly the history of the Catholic Church in Los Aldamas, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Dr. Pastrana does an excellent job in describing its struggle and its impact in the community and its place in history.

It contains pictures of the old church and also the new one that replaced it. He also lets the readers know the areas that this Parish served and also lists the records that are currently under their possession and available to researchers.

If you are doing research in this area, this is defenetly a book you want to read. The only problem is that it’s availability is very limited but as mentioned before the University has a copy.
