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.
The recent discovery of an obituary and death record for great-grandmother Laura Mae Fields leads to finding a rural Texas newspaper announcement of her marriage to Andrew Jackson Pace.
Photos and videos of Villa Hidalgo and San José parish, in the state of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. This is where my 2nd great-grandparents, Refugio Nieto and Aurelia Compean, married n 1883.
An English translation written by my Spanish-fluent father helps me better interpret the genealogical information contained in the 1883 Mexico Catholic church pre-marriage investigation record for my 2nd great grandparents, Refugio Nieto and Aurelia Compean.
My living branch of Dad’s extended family never knew the name of his Nieto great-grandfather, who died in Mexico before the family immigrated to the U.S. After more than 15 years of looking, I finally locate documentation that confirms his name.
The second part in trying to determine the accurate birth year for my Mexico-born 2nd great-grandmother. Obtaining copies of her Spanish-written Catholic church baptism and marriage records.
