1677 Baptism of Balerio Rodriguez in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the January 27, 1677 baptism record of my wife's 7th great grandfather Balerio Rodriguez in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

This record indicates that the parents of Balerio Rodriguez were Nicolas Rodriguez and Ana de Longoria. His godparents are listed as Alonso Guaxardo and Maria de Benavides.

Balerio grows up to marry Michaela Chapa and I have yet to find out whom her parents were.
