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.
Two new documents found last month helped me to finally start busting down another 15+ year old brick wall, providing the first references to the names of my great-grandfather José Robledo’s parents. Not even Dad, his cousins, or his uncle (José’s sole living child) know the names of these individuals.
Autosomal DNA testing helps us confirm that a possible cousin, pursuing a decades’ long changed-identity hunch, is genetically related to Mom and to the right family.
