Here is a list of the books that Rene Escobar made during his lifetime. They are invaluable when it comes to genealogical research for South Texas and Northeastern Mexico Genealogy. I made this page to answer a question that I get too often. Where can I buy the books of Rene Escobar? Here is the answer.
During the last Annual Texas Hispanic Genealogical and Historical Conference I meet Mara Escobar Romero one of the sisters of Rene Escobar. I found out that she and her sisters manage the Escobar Book Company and offer all the books of Rene Escobar for sale. I asked her how can people order their books and I was provided with a business card. What I did was take a photo of each book as best as I could in order to create this page.
Below you will find the picture of the book cover of each book, a very short description and the going price. Prices may change from time to time. By the way I am not associated with the Escobar Book Company nor do I get any commission from these books, I am listing them here to make it easier for you to buy these books that otherwise would be very hard to get your hands on. With that said here they are.
