This is the July 27, 1695 Marriage of my 10th great grandparents Juan Chapa and Maria Munguia in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
The page where the first part of this record is is badly torn and thus missing almost half of the record. We only know it belongs to this couple due to their names being written on the left margin.
This record does not mention the names of the parents but thanks to other sources we know that the parents of Juan Chapa are Juan Bautista Chapa and Beatrice Olivares de Treviño.
The parents of Maria Munguia are Juan Munguia and Leonor Mancha.
The witnesses listed in this record are Lucas Gonzalez, Juan Botello, and Joseph de Urdiales.
