Las Villas del Norte 2016 Journal
Last Names of Nuevo Leon


Las Villas del Norte Genealogy Group has published their first Journal titled “Las Villas del Norte 2016 Journal” and it is now available for purchase. I had the honor of editing many great articles and putting the journal together.

All articles are about South Texas and Northeastern Mexico and down below you can see the table of contents. This journal will be a great addition to your genealogical library.

I also published several articles myself and provided a list of resources for DNA research. Thanks to all members of Las Villas del Norte whom articles made this publication possible.
