Ignacio Guerra Canamar Baptism Mexico City 1633
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

This is the November 6, 1633 baptism of Ignacio Guerra Cañamar who was baptized in Mexico City. He is my 8th great grandfather.

This record, just like his will, confirms that the names of his parents are  Antonio Guerra Cañamal and Luisa Hernandez de Rio Frio. 

Ignacio, grows up to marry Maria de la Garza Cavazos the daughter of Juan Cavazos and Elena de la Garza. After Maria dies he marries a second time to Maria Catarina Fernandez de Tijerina the daughter of Gregorio Fernandez de Tijerina and Beatriz Gonzalez Hidalgo. If interested in a 527 page book of their descendants, you can get it here:

Above you can see the baptism record and below you will find the transcription of it.
