1772 baptism of Maria Ignacia Flores
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Furthermore, the record indicates that her parents were form the jurisdiction of Camargo. With this I now know where to search for more records for them.

Maria Ignacia grows up to marry Jose Manuel de la Garza who is the son of

    1. Moises, there for a moment I was thinking it was my Maria Ignacia Flores. Mine was daughter of Manuel Flores and Eufemia Gutierrez from Agualeguas or vecinos de esta. She married Don Perfecto Garcia in 1905.

      1. Thank you. Will definitely look over my tree. So far I’m working on just immediate families. I will try to search for Jose Antonio Flores .. see where this leads me. I’ll get back. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
