Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The only newspaper that I have been able to find that covered news about Starr County, Hidalgo County, and Cameron County is The Brownsville Daily Herald out of Brownsville Texas and it covers the years 1897 through 1910. Over a year ago I found a very interesting post by searching this newspaper and you can read it here Anita Flores, Tragedy at Los Guaraches Ranch, Hidalgo County, Texas.

You can browse and or search this newspaper in two places:

  • Chronicling America – Search America’s historic newspapers pages from 1836-1922 or use the U.S. Newspaper Directory to find information about American newspapers published between 1690-present.
  • The Portal To Texas History –  The Portal is a gateway to Texas history materials. You may discover anything from an ancestor’s picture in a college yearbook to a rare historical map.

After 1910 The Brownsville Daily Herald became The Brownsville Herald but unfortunately it is not online and if you wish so you can see  most of its issues form 1910 to present at the University of Texas Pan American.

Online you can also see the The daily herald. (Brownsville, Tex.) 1892-1897 which was the newspaper that preceded The Brownsville Daily Herald and it is also available at Chronicling America.

Finally, I had always wanted to dive in into more in-dept with newspaper research but had no idea where to start. I want to thank Kenneth R Marks for the following video that he made about researching newspapers and where to find them for free. If you find any other news papers talking about South Texas please let me know.
