Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1759 death record of my 7th great grandfather  Jose Cristobal Guerra Canamar of in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. He was the son of Ignacio Guerra Canamar and Catalina Fernandez de Tijerina. She was married to Nicolasa de Trevino, whom was the daughter of Francisco Baez de Trevino and Catalina de Amaya. If you are also a descendant of theirs send me your family tree so that I can add you to mine.
