1885 Map of Coahuila Mexico
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

In this post, you will find information about an 1885 map of Coahuila, Mexico, and the link where to view it in high definition.

Not sure if you may be researching the Mexican state of Coahuila but I thought it would be a great idea to share it.

This map is dated 1885 and might be useful to see what towns used to be around your ancestors home town. Sometimes this will provide you with additional clues as to where to continue your research.

If you click on the image you will be taken to a high-quality image of the map. The detail is great.
