Sagrada Mitra de Guadalajara Antiguo Obispado de la Nueva Galicia
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

Discover your Mexican ancestors with the book, Sagrada Mitra de Guadalajara Antiguo Obispado de la Nueva Galicia. This book is an indispensable book for your genealogy research. In my own case, I have used it over and over again to trace my own Mexican Ancestors.


This is an excellent book that contains genealogical extractions concerning marriages and marriage dispensations for over half of Mexico and includes some from, La Provincia de Tejas, what is now Texas. The time period covered is from the 1600’s to the 1700’s. Below you can see a table of contents to get the idea of the scope that this work encompasses.

Each extraction is a short paragraph that contains all the genealogical information found on the original documents. Once you find your Mexican Ancestors in this book you might want to get the copies of the original since there may be from 5 to 20 pages of additional information.
