In 1891 The current president of Mexico Porfirio Diaz visited Mier, Tamaulipas. I just wanted to share this since it is interesting specially if your ancestors are from Ciudad Mier. I have scanned the copy of the invitation from the book “Ciudad Mier Historia y Cultura” unfortunately when I scanned it I did not do it in high quality. At the bottom of the image I try and transcribe it as best as I can. If you find any errors please advise so that I may correct them.
Copy of invitation found in the book Ciudad Mier Historia y Cultura:
As you can see the quality is not that good. According to the author of this book the original can be found int he archives of Ciudad, Mier.

My great grand mother Paula Lopez was born in June 4 1891 and on her Civil Registry Birth record it states that her father was the “Encargado de Justicia” of Arcabuz, Tamaulipas. More than likely he must have had attended since this was no small occasion or at least to help keep the peace, but who knows I can just assume.
Colegio de Ninas
The above image was published by Archivo General e Histórico del Estado de Tamaulipas on their Facebook page. You can see the original image here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=532543840128482&set=a.532543793461820.1073741997.193457200703816&type=1&relevant_count=1
Not sure if this is were the dance took place but more than likely it is.
