Genealogy goes hand in hand with history and thus today I want to let you know and make you aware of Cindy Medina’s New Spain & Mexico History Facebook Group.

If you follow our Mexican Genealogy Facebook Group then you know that historical posts are not allowed unless you tie them in with your personal family genealogy and or family history. I personally am a history buff but our group is focused strictly on genealogy.

It is for this reason that I want to make you aware of Cindy’s group. It is the perfect place to share tidbits, blog posts, and articles about history concerning New Spain and Mexico History. I highly encourage you to join Cindy’s group New Spain & Mexico History and share history there and keep on sharing genealogy resources and or inquiries at our Facebook Group Mexican Genealogy.

I had the pleasure of meeting Cindy Medina in person during the recent 38th Annual Texas Historical and Genealogical Conference in Austin Texas this past September 27 – 30 and thus was able to take the photo above. Cindy is very energetic and outgoing and her goals for her group are focused to only New Spain and Mexican History. Her vision for her group is to create a great community that is proud of their rich history just as our own community is proud of their rich Mexican ancestry and roots.

Description of Group by Cindy Medina

The bilingual FB group “New Spain & Mexico History” focuses on the history of Spanish exploration, settlement in North America and celebration of Spanish heritage throughout the vast region — just as other groups focus on New England. We welcome members with New Spain ancestry who want to share articles, posts and pictures about this era.

We embrace our Mexican heritage including our Indigenous history.

We welcome history from both Mexico πŸ‡²πŸ‡½ and Mexican-American sides.

We welcome posts suggesting reading material, especially history books.

Seguimos Adelante con Nuestra Historia! πŸ™‚


Note: This is a Celebration page of our mutual history. Please do not post any offensive nor disrespectful posts or responses….Respect is key in the group πŸ™‚

I hope that this group helps us history buffs share what we come across that is historical but that it is not appropriate for our Mexican Genealogy Facebook Group. See you in Cindy’s group!

The 7th We Are Cousins Virtual Genealogy Conference will be September 11-13, 2024

  1. Does anyone know that there is a Moctezuma III ? His name was Alonso Mancilla de Teurel and he holds the title.
    He never got to rein because . He was going to be the next emperor of Mexico but the revolution ended the monarchy. Most people don’t know this even in Mexico.
    On the internet there is an error misspelling his name Marcilla. this is an error all over the internet.
    Historians from Mexico need to correct this. I have documents that prove this
    The reason Mancilla de Teurel was chosen is because he was the direct descendant of the conquistador
    Juan de Mancilla and MOCTEZUMA. So much history in Mexico it’s mindboggling.
    I have documents that prove all I’m saying. The Spanish house of Moctezuma changed it’s to Marcilla
    after Mancilla Moctezuma died in Louisiana I dont know why they did that.
    thank you for your wonderful site
