The eBook “Aquellos Primeros Saltillenses” by Maria Elena Santoscoy Flores is a great resource to anyone who has traced their ancestors to Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. This book provides essential knowledge about the origins of Saltillo and the perils of its founders and early settlers. It also describes their main activities through which in the middle of the semi-desert landscape were able to build one of the most important cities of northeastern Mexico.
I have yet to read the full book but I have already found mentions of several of my ancestors especially Alberto del Canto and Diego de Montemayor. If you are doing Genealogy research on any of the early settlers you might want to look towards the end of the book. The author provides the family trees of most of them.
