1698 Baptism of Ana Maria Guajardo in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Here is the 1698 Baptism of Ana Maria Guajardo. She was baptised in what is now Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. 

Also, Ana Maria Guajardo is my 8th great grandmother. She is the daughter of Joseph Martinez Guajardo and Margarita Gutierrez.

She grows up to marry Jose Jacinto Peña for whom I have yet to find parents for. I am a descendant of hers through her daughter Maria Catarina de Peña.

The below document shows that her God parents are Juan Gonzalez Hidalgo and Rosa Gutierrez. I am not sure f they are related but it is likely that they are.

  2. Moises, you mentioned, “She was baptised in what is now Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. “, could you tell us more about the history of Monterrey, for instance, what was the area named during when Ana Maria Guajardo was born? I like hearing the original names and history surrounding our ancestors. Thanks!
