Hi Mr. Garza, Do you have an address for the Archdiose of Aguascalientes and San Luis Potosi?
My dad's family is from SLP, and my mom's from Aguqascalientes.
I'm trying to see if i can get birth and marriage certificates, and learn the names of more family members.
I do not have an address for them, but if you are looking for records pre 1930 then search for them on familysearch.org.
