If your family or ancestors are from the San Antonio area the book by Fredrick C. Chabot is a must have book. It is a compilation of family genealogies since the settlement of San Antonio all the way up till 1937 when the author published the book.
The book is divided in four sections; Spanish-Mexicans from pages 15 – 243, French pages 255 – 265, Anglo-Americans pages 273 – 358, and Germans pages 375 – 412.
I wish I could tell you that I found my family within the pages of this book but I did not since they are not from the San Antonio area. It was interesting to find some families listed as coming from Revilla and Mier.
Regardless of how useful it was for me or not, I highly recommend that you check it out if you have any ties to the San Antonio area. The best thing is that this book is available out there in the internet free of charge for anyone to enjoy.
