Welcome to the Mier Padrones Transcription Project that is being conducted by members of the We Are Cousins Facebook Community , but anyone is more than welcomed to join (the more the better, to finish faster). Specially anyone whose ancestors lived at one point in Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Here you will find a video of the project to help you get started, a link to free transcription software, and also a list of the years completed and the ones pending. If interested in volunteering to complete a year of the Padrones please use the contact page to send me the year that you wish to help us with so that I may also update this page to reflect your help.

In case that you may be wondering what a Padron is it is a Church Census that lists every person living under it’s parish. These Padrones offer a wealth of genealogical information about our families and can even help you break brick walls down and or fill gaps on missing family members of our ancestors.

The end result of the project will be Three eBooks that will be available for everyone to enjoy. We are currently working on the first Book covering the years 1796 to 1806. After book 1 is done we will do Book 2 covering 1820 to 1826. The final one will be the one covering the years 1782 to 1792. I have left those years to the end since they are harder to read.

1. Please use Transcript to do your transcription. (in on a mac use Genscriber)

Use the following link to read about it and install it to your computer.

Note: Please note that if you open the RTF file that transcript makes it will look weird. Don’t worry once I receive it I will change some settings and make it look good.
