If you have not come across this book, El Nuevo Reino de Leon Y Monterrey A Traves de 3000 Documentos (The New Kingdom of Leon and Monterrey through 3000 Documents) you are in for a treat.
This book was written by Israel Cavazos Garza back in 1998 it is the synopsis of 3000 documents from the Civil Archives of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
This book covers all the civil archives found from 1598 to 1705. Many of my ancestors are listed there and I am sure that many of yours are also listed within the pages of this book.
This book will bring your ancestors to life and provide a small glimpse into their lives and occupations. It also contains a great deal of genealogical information.

I miss el senor Cavazos Garza. I was lucky to have met him and to have purchased several of his books which included a set of 5 protologos covering documents from 1700 to 1801. Got a good insight on my ancestors comings and goings! Will see about getting a copy of this one. If not, will go to a library. Thanks for sharing.
I LOVE THIS BOOK. I HAVE A COPY. THIS BOOK IS A MUST FOR BOTH ROOKIE AND PROFESSIONAL GENEALOGIST, BY STANDER, ETC. THE DOCUMENTS COVER EVERYTHING FROM RAMO DE CIVIL TO TIERRAS. YOU GET KNOW YOUR ANCESTORS BETTER, SOME WHOM HAD TO PROVE THEIR “ESPANOL.”
It is a treasure.
