Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The book “Alcaldes de Saltillo La autoridad local, desde Alberto del Canto a los actuales municipes 1577 – 1999” is an amazing genealogical resource that is if you have ancestors that were from Saltillo Mexico. I know that you will like this book. I found interesting information on several of my ancestors like Alberto del Canto, Santos Rojo, Baltazar de Sosa, Juan Navarro, and Bartolome de Cuellar among others.

For what ever reason this book does not have an author but it is indicated that it was done by the Archivo Municipal de Saltillo. Overall this book is another genealogical gem.

The book lists the following positions:

  • Alcalde Mayor
  • Teniente de Alcalde Mayor
  • Alcalde Ordinario de Primer Voto
  • Alcalde Ordinario de Segundo Voto
  • Regidor Depositario de General
  • Teniente de Algaucil Mayor
  • Regidor Alcalde Privincial

The above listed are just some and is an example of the positions listed for one administration. Others include way more titles and individuals. Overall this book contains thousands of names. It contains a name index on the back for easy searching of your ancestors.
