I wanted to share another great find with you. This find is the Facebook page for the “Archivo General e Histórico del Estado de Tamaulipas”. I first discovered this Facebook page while conducting research, but was originally inactive. Since almost a week ago this page has had allot of activity and has shared allot of great content.
They have shared photos and documents about Camargo, Tamaulipas and Ciudad Victoria amongst other great content.
Let me just warn you, this page is completely in Spanish.
