This past Tuesday Crispin Rendon released his first volume, out of five, in his new series of the Families of Galeana, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Bellow you will find a description of the volume by Crispin Rendon and also the email that I received which includes the link to download this eBook. This eBook is invaluable and I highly recommend that you download and add it to your genealogical digital library.

Description of this volume by Cripsin Rendon:

This is the first of five families of Galeana volumes. This volume contains marriage information from the first 500 marriage records found on film 728340 (matrimonios 1718-1836). These marriages occurred in the time span of August 1718 to February 1766. These marriages are found on images 8-214. Basic information from the marriage records is presented along with other information gathered in an attempt to present two generation descendant reports. Most of the non-marriage record information presented was gathered using the FamilySearch.org database index.

    I’m having a very hard time researching my family tree. My grandma I believe was born in Galeana….her name was Maria Santos Diaz, daughter of Paula Martinez and Jose Diaz. I have no connection to my Mexican family members still in Mexico and would love to find a connection with any living relatives……can you tell me where to start.

      If your grandparents were born before 1930’s look for them int he Mexican Civil registry either at familysearch or ancestry. For living relatives the best place to find them is facebook.

    I am researching my husband’s Basaldu/Basaldua line. After using FamilySearch.org, I think that I have been able to trace them from present day Tarrant County, Texas through the Galeana, Nuevo Leon, Mexico church records to Gregario De Basaldua and Angelina Flores, parents in the baptism of their son, Pedro Salvador Basaldua Flores, in 1717, Segrario Metropolitano, Satillo, Coahuila, Mexico.

    Do you have any information on this family? I would appreciate you thoughts and anything you might be able to add to direct me to where I might look to find additional information on Gregario De Basaldua and Angelina Flores.

    Thank you so much.

      I don’t have them on my tree. Try familysearch.org the Monterrey church records have been indexed. Also try the Index to the Marriage Investigations of Guadalajara.

    I know my family roots, but it will be fun for me to know more about other Galeana’s families
