For the past few years I had been coming across various works of Edna Garza Brown. Recently I came across a book Titled “The Genealogy of Edna Garza Brown”. I know that it will be of interest to you specially if you have traced your ancestry all the way back to Juan Bautista Chapa. This book includes a nine chart family tree and it contains all the documentation to support her family tree. It is very interesting and also contains a copy of the will of Juan Batista Chapa.
I highly recommend it to anyone.
I will share with you a short paragraph that the author wrote describing her intentions or the purpose of sharing her work:
“We hope that the material in this book will help others in their research
for family ties and history; but more than that, we hope it will serve as a
form of thanks to those people who have helped so much. We know people like
Lottie Gaetcke, who spent hours looking through names and places, will carry
on an interest in the history which they began to learn from a few small
facts. Perhaps others will discover the pleasure of their in- laws and friends
in Working together to discover what this world is all about.” – Edna Garza Brown

I know this post is very short but I just want to make sure that you are aware that this book is out there and you never know it may be the clue that you need to break down a brick wall that you may have.
