Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The following is the baptism record of my 8th great grandmother Francisca de Cervera Longoria, christened 10 Sep 1675 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, daughter of Gabriel Cervera and Maria Longoria. It is interesting to note that the priest wrote her fathers last name as Zerbera. I have also seen it spelled Selbera.
