Families of, Galeana, Nuevo Leon, Mexico Volume Two
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Volume Two of Crispin Rendon’s latest project is out, titled Families of, Galeana, Nuevo Leon, Mexico Volume Two. Below you will find a short description of this particular volume and also a copy of the email that I received, both by Crispin Rendon.

Description of Volume Two by Crispin Rendon:

Volume two of this series contains marriage information from 500 marriage records found on film 728340 (matrimonios 1718-1836). These marriages occurred in the time span of February 1766 to May 1789. These marriages are found on images 214-279. 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 database index.

Today I got another of many emails asking if I will be going to the annual Texas Hispanic Genealogy Conference in Laredo.

Ten years ago the Laredo conference was my first. I had hoped to meet Lupita Castillo. She was the president of that group. She had been emailing me for some time always asking me to help one of her members with research. I was glad to help. Sadly she died shortly before the conference. My primo Jose Felipe de la Garza was at the conference-leading a field trip. I had to know Jose for some years. He lived in Ventura, California. I had visited him and his wife many times. Some wonderful times. He has since died of cancer. I met Guadalupe Martinez and his wife for the first time at that conference. He has since passed away. Joel Rene Escobar was selling his books there. His sisters have taken over his book sales since he died. Angel Brown, Charles Sadler, Gilbert Patino all gone.  Anyway, I very much enjoyed that conference and those since then. I am not going this year.

Back in my teenage years, I remember an acquaintance died in a car accident. I had a reoccurring thought that I was somehow responsible. The idea was nonsense in that I only heard about the accident sometime later. Since then when someone dies that I have known I get those same thoughts. Silly but true.

My sanity aside; the take away is: make an impression, it may outlive you.

Best Regards,

Crispin Rendon

As I have mentioned before, I have already registered for the upcoming conference in Laredo, Texas (You can read more about it here: 36th Annual Texas State Hispanic Genealogical and Historical Conference). I was looking forward to meeting with Crispin in person as I did last year. To tell you the truth Crispin’s work has helped me allot and as you have already seen I add him as a source on almost every post regarding my ancestors since he has provided so many clues that have helped me find copies of the original documents. Not to mention all the eBooks that he has published are a wealth of information. Crispin if you read this, Thank You! You have made an impression on me, I appreciate your work and all that you do for our community.

  1. I don’t even know where to start but I will say THANK YOU X a MILLION!!!! for putting this together. I am 45% Native American and have been trying to find my connection from where, any information. I finally reached an area in my research where I saw the name ‘Indio or Yndio’ from my maternal side and I usually just type my question and see what pops up. Well I did the same tonight and I was guided to your link. Initially I had selected GaleanaV2 but I read something in your wording and said no let me start on GaleanaV1. I got to page 45 and nope I was being drawn back to GaleanaV2. I literally stopped took a DEEP breathe and I Prayed to my ancestors (I’m NOT crazy I promise lol) but I had done the same 2 weeks ago for my Paternal side and they led me to Native Americans in Guanajuato called ‘Chichimecas’ thanks to a Census for my Paternal, Great Grandparents. So I asked them to PLEASE GUIDE ME and LEAD ME TO the location where I may find the information necessary to be able to Honor them in the proper way since so much has been lost with time. No LIE within 3 minutes it led me to page 37. And I see my GrandParents names Jose Marcial SANDOVAL and my abuela Juana Gertrudis NOLASCO, which I had seen on the marriage of Jose Bernardo SANDOVAL. I can’t Thank you enough for putting this together, I’ve been at this for about a year this coming July and it’s a lot of work but WELL WORTH it. As if I was not BLESSED enough I was listening to my cd by Putumayo Presents- Latin Reggae: Mulata Descolorada by Macaco was on and I see indio MULATO. I literally started crying and got the chills, I feel COMPLETE in regards to my Maternal Grandfathers, Fathers Line. I’ve discovered so much I wouldn’t have asked for anything more I am beyond Blessed. I am really torn between my Native side and my Political side but I tell myself that’s just the way LIFE WAS back then. I am a Direct Descendant to Juan Leal Goraz, Canary Islanders on my Maternal, Grandfathers, Moms side. Which Blesses me with 11 Mayors, all of which were my Grandfathers or Uncles, along with Jose Antonio Navarro being my 4th Great Grandfather, James Bowie being my Great Grand Uncle, and Ursula Veramindi and Family since she married Bowie, Jose Antonio Ximenes is my 5th Great Grandfather, Texas Ranger (Grass Fight) and the Chapel of Miracles. Francois P. Giraud and Francois Guilbeau, my Grandfather Juan Hernandez Giraud and Bryan Callaghan and Young Perry Alsbury… the list goes on and on. It’s so MUCH to take in, the question I ask myself is… “now what to do with all this knowledge” I have been Blessed to discover and on GOOD FRIDAY WOW!!! Once again, Thank you for this, I hope it helps others discover the information they are seeking because it helped me. The information is out there it just takes TIME, DEDICATION and DETERMINATION lucky enough for ME I have both.
