A couple days ago, I blogged about finding the Información Matrimonio (Premarital Investigation) record for my 2nd great grandparents Silverio Robledo Nieto and Maria Jesus Sanchez Carbajal. I mentioned in that post that an actual marriage date is not referenced in that record. This is typical for Información Matrimoniales; the marriage event is documented in a separate marriage record, the matrimonio. On Sunday, I found that matrimonio record!
Locating the premarital investigation record for my 2nd great grand parents Silverio Robledo and Maria Jesus Sanches, married in the state of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. This record is rich in genealogical information.
A series of four records breaks down a 16 year research brick wall, allowing me to verify the names of my great-grandfather’s parents through evidence analysis.
