1608 Baptism of Alonso de Leon in Mexico City

This is the August 31, 1608 baptism of my 10th great grandfather Alonso de Leon in Mexico City, Mexico. This document indicates that his parents are Lorenzo Perez and Adriana de Leon. I want to thank Emma Montemayor for posting information about this document and clarifying that the one that originally found it was Don Israel Cavazos Garza back in 1985. I used her post for the clues that I needed to be able to locate it on familysearch.org.
