Last Names of Nuevo Leon

 This is the second volume by Guillermo Garmendia Leal about the founding families of Monterrey and their descendants. It was written back in 1993 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon Mexico. If you have traced your ancestors all the way to these founding families then this book will be an excellent resource for your research. Just be aware that the author mentions that he left out two families. One was the family of Diego de Montemayor and the other the one of Laonso de Leon.

In the book the author states that he will focus special attention to these two and will have their own book. Years later he did publish a book for each. You can read more about the one for Diego here Diego de Montemayor Sus Decendientes – Diego de Montemayor and His Decendants.
