Just wanted to let you know about SAGA “Spanish American Genealogical Association” they are based out of Corpus Christi, Texas and you can visit their website here http://www.sagacorpuschristi.com/ .
Why am I talking about SAGA? I am talking about SAGA because it is one of the few organizations that have written many index books about church marriage, birth, and death records. Thus making them available for sale on their website and you can also find their books in many libraries. I have used their books many times to break some brick walls.
This is their mission statement:
“The object of the Spanish American Genealogical Association shall be that of creating and maintaining an organization for the promotion of research, collection, and development of genealogical data of the earliest Spanish and Mexican settlers of Texas. The Association’s goal is to conduct research, obtain collections, and develop resources (computerization of data) of genealogical data and to make them available to its membership, as well as to the south Texas community by housing said materials in libraries and archives.”
I think their mission statement states what they do very accurately.
They have books about:
- Camargo, Tamaulipas
- Guerrero, Tamaulipas
- Mier, Tamaulipas
- Matamoros, Tamaulipas
- Agualeguas, Nuevo Leon
- Cadereyta, Nuevo Leon
- Cerralvo, Nuevo Leon
- Sabinas Hidalgo, Nuevo Leon
- Vallecillo, Nuevo Leon
Only about three of the above are indexed by FamilySearch so as you can see the value of these books when it comes to genealogical research is immense. Just wish I could afford to buy all of them.
You can check out their list of books available or order here: http://www.sagacorpuschristi.com/booksforsale.htm
