8 Websites Where You Can Find Your Mexican Ancestors


Here are eight great websites where you can search or will help search for your Mexican Ancestors. You can also find these websites listed on the Web Sites tab. Hope that you check them out. I will be posting more posts like this as I add websites to the list.

  • The Genealogy Of Mexico – Gary Felix’s website about the early settlers of Mexico and History, many other resources too. This website is an authority in Mexican Genealogy.
  • Nuestros Ranchos – This website focuses only on the Genealogy of Jalisco, Zacatecas and Aguascalientes.
  • Raul Longoria – Family website of Raul Longoria with deep roots in South Texas and Mexico. Excellent resource for anyone researching their South Texas or Northeastern Mexico Ancestry, but also contains information on ancestors from all over Mexico and other countries.
  • FamilySearch – Best genealogy website ever for it’s extensive browsable online documents of Mexican birth, death, and marriage records both from the church and the civil government. Not just great for Mexican Genealogy but great for Genealogy in any country.
  • Mexico GENWeb – Mexico Home page for the GEN Web project. It contains many great resources.
  • Hispanic Genealogy – Contains some good stuff about Mexican Genealogy, unfortunately seems that it has not been updated in a while.
  • Mexico Genealogy Forum – GenForum by Genealogy.com, excellent place to post inquiries about Mexican Genealogy and or search for ancestors. I love this one since I find clues from many users that can always be verified.

Just want to remind you that if you know about any other great web sites please let me know. Send me a message with the contact form or just post a comments bellow.

      Theresa,

      Familysearch is my favorite of them all. Unfortunately I have found that from time to time some films stop appering on the index search. That is when I have come to rely on the great works of others for clues of where to look in familysearch manually.
