Nueva Vizcaya was the first northern province of New Spain to be explored and settled by the Spanish. In about 1528, a group of Spaniard explorers, led by Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca, first arrived at the actual territory of what is now Chihuahua. The conquest of this new territory lasted nearly one hundred years and encountered heavy resistance from the Conchos tribe, but the desire of the Spanish to transform the region into a mining center led to a strong strategy to control this area.

You can expect to find records going all the way back up until 1632 maybe earlier if you get lucky.

    My name is Gregory Pisano. I have a sacramental record for my paternal great-grandparents who were married in Chihuahua city in 1850. The record contains the name of the native village of my great-grandmother but I cannot determine a satisfactory reading of it. I can read the remainder of the record but not this name. Would anyone who is from or familiar with the Chihuahua city area like have a look at it? I can be reached at Thank you.

        Moises, thanks for your post. It appears that I was not clear where my sticking point is. I can read the entire partida except I cannot come up with a satisfactory reading for the place-name found on the extreme right, fourth line from the bottom.

About This Website

This website Mexican Genealogy was born out of inquiry’s that I used to receive on my personal blog We Are Cousins. We Are Cousins focuses on South Texas and the Northern states of Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Coahuila. An often question that I would get was “How do I get started with Mexican Genealogical Research?”. As a response I created this website to refer those inquiring. If you are also new I highly recommend that you sign up to our “Meet Your Ancestors” email series.

Have Fun and Learn!
