Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the October 23, 1717 baptism of my 6th great grandfather Nicolas Antonio Gonzalez in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This document indicates that he was the son of Diego Gonzalez and Maria Treviño. He grows up to marry Maria Ana Josefa Garcia the daughter of Joaquin Garcia and Maria Isabel Juana Guajardo.
