Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the July 11, 1683 baptism of my 6th great grandfather Juan Antonio de Tamez in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This document indicates that he was born in June 27, 1683 and that his parents are Juan de Tamez and Nicolasa Flores.

Juan eventually marries Catarina Rodriguez de Montemayor and I descend form their son Juan Angel Tamez.
