I find familysearch.org a wonderful website to help with any international ancestor search!

Familysearch is my favorite of them all. Unfortunately I have found that from time to time some films stop appering on the index search. That is when I have come to rely on the great works of others for clues of where to look in familysearch manually.
I am trying to find , or searching in how to get my grandmothers baptismal record, she was born in Zacatecas,mexico,, what is the first I need to take.
Check FamilySearch.org and browse the collections for Zacatecas.
I have found at family’s each.org the best tool to gather the roots of the Orozco’s family. Even records from the local church where my grandfather married my gradmother at Santa Maria del Oro, Jalisco ( ca 1911) later on they moved to Atotonilco el Alto.
Thanks for sharing these new Web sites.
Why are none of these sites in Spanish, if they are truly for Mexican ancestry?
Because our readers are Mexican-Americans who are trying to find their roots in Mexico and it’s Spanish colonial era. If you search for Mexican Ancestry in Spanish you will find many Mexican websites dedicated to this topic.
Trying to find where I can trace my family back to their Exile from spain or Portugal but I believe it was Spain. They were Sephardic Jews conversos that pretended to be Catholic from the Spanish Inquisition. Families that did not convert were burned alive by the order of Ferdinand and Isabella. Most of my family just assimilated into the Catholic faith dropping judaism completely over the centuries. Trying to find how I can connect my family back to that time. It’s been passed down orally through generations that this is where we came from. My family was last living in the state of Michoacán prior to immigrating to the United States. Any help is appreciated.
Is there anyone with the last name ”Ortiz”
There are probably thousands of people with that last name.
