1775 Marriage of Juan Jose Sanchez Navarro and Maria Gertrudis Garcia
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the 1775 Marriage of Juan Jose Sanchez Navarro and Maria Gertrudis Garcia 
who got married in what is now Vallecillo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. They are my 5th great grandparents.

This record is very important since it mentions the names of their parents. The parents of Juan Jose Sanchez Navarro are Ignacio Sanchez Navarro and Juana Dominguez. 

The parents of Maria Gertrudis Garcia are Jose Miguel Garcia and Maria Antonia Josefa Lopez.

I am a descendant of theirs through their daughter Maria Tomasa Sanchez whom married Jose Rafael de la Garza.

This record also mentions that they were mestizos and that may be the reason that I can not find any more records past their parents.
