Guerra-Salinas Genealogical Family Tree Book
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is a Guerra-Salinas Genealogical Family Tree book. It covers over ten generations of descendants of hundreds of Guerra and Salinas family members. The full name of the book is "Las Escobas Ranch Salinas Family Reunion 2017".

The author of this book is non other than my good friend Irma Salinas Saldaña and she wrote is to document her 2017 family reunion and also as a way to share her research with her family and us.

If you have Guerra or Salinas ancestors then you definitely want to check this book out. Specially if you have roots in Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and South Texas. It is also a great addition to any genealogical research library.

What I really enjoyed about the book was the Guerra research that Irma has done. Turns out that our most recent Guerra ancestor is Joseph Antonio Albino Guerra who married Maria Rosalia de Hinojosa in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. 

Below I have included a link where to buy the book on Amazon and also towards the bottom you can see the table of contents. It provides a better glimpse as to the contents and what you can expect to find within thee pages of this book.

  1. I hope to read more on early settlers of South Texas, including Luna , Valdez, Huizar, Anthony, and many more.

  2. Moises, I just joined Somo Primos porque somos primos!
    However, I am an old fashioned foggy who does not know anything or do
    anything related to technology and media, because I don’t know anything about it.
    Fear of the unknown. I am a 12 generation decendent of Antonio Guerra Canamal and Maria Porras,
    and related to Jose Bernardo Gutierrez de Lara somewhere on the same tree. I would definitely want
    to purchase several of the books related to the topic but I don’t use credit cards either and can not
    purchase items on Amazon. Could you please guide me to a place where I could get ahold of some of
    the books. I would greatly appreciate any suggestion you may have.

  3. Well organized, beautifully presented, easy read, informative book. Thanks to the author for her love of family history, and for making that history available to all of us.
