Historia de la Iglesia de Santiago Apostol
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

If you have ancestors from Santiago Nuevo Leon then this book titled Historia de la Iglesia de Santiago Apostol is a great read.

I came across it while researching my Marroquin Ancestors who were in the area since the 1600's all the way to the 1860's when they moved to northern Tamaulipas.

What I think is so interesting is that it is the history of a church that many of my ancestors used to worship God and that it still stand today.
