Cavazos: Last Names of Nuevo Leon
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

A very popular last name out there is that of Cavazos and today I want to tell you about my latest book that focuses on this last name. It is titled "Cavazos" and is part of my book series Last Names of Nuevo Leon.

My connection to this book is a personal one since it is focused on the descendants of Juan Cavazos and Elena de la Graza. They are my 9th great grandparents.

Jan is considered to be the progenitor of the Cavazos last name for Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, and South Texas.

This book is contains nine generations of their descendants and covers the time period of the 1600s through the early 1900s. It is 574 pages and is full of genealogical information that includes sources for every listed fact.

Keep in mind, this book as all my others are only tools to help you build your tree. Once you discover a death date, baptism date, and or marriage date get a copy of the original. It is very rewarding to do so and you will learn more details about your ancestors.

Also this book does not include every descendant of theirs since that is impossible, it only includes the ones that I have identified through documents, reliable published, and unpublished works.
