  1. This Jose Manuel Hinojosa could be a brother or something to my 7th great grandpa.. the name of my 7th great grandpa was joe Manuel angel Hinojosa y chapa married to Maria ynes .. my Hinojosa ancestry migrated from Mier to paso del zacate,,, which is now known as Dr. coss Nuevo León

  2. Jose Manuel Hinojosa is my 5th ggf also BUT not this one. My Manuel is a great-uncle to your Manuel. My Manuel is a brother to your Manuel’s grandfather, Diego. To further complicate things, there are 3 Diego Hinojosa in consecutive sequence.

  3. My Grandfather Adolfo was a real challenge with three different birthdates to research. I did eventually find his baptism record. It had his parents and grandparents names on it. His father Jose Simon, jose Prudencio also. As you know Jose Manuel is the next Grandfather of mine. You're an inspiration primo. Thanks for all you do.
