Las Villas del Norte 2020 Journal
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

The Las Villas del Norte 2020 Journal is out and ready for you to enjoy. This blog post gives a short overview and includes the table of contents so that you can see what to expect when you get your own copy.

I had the honor of editing many great articles and putting the journal together. Some are just fascinating to read.

Like our previous journals, it contains a great deal and wealth of genealogical information on families from South Texas and Northeastern Mexico.

Down below you can see the table of contents to get a true scope of the articles and what you can expect when you read our journal.

I am sure that this journal will be a great addition to your genealogical library.
