Genealogy Resources for Estado de Mexico (Mexico State)

The following is a list of resources that I have found for the state of Mexico that can be used to do genealogical research for that state.

The origin of the modern state of Mexico is the reorganization of Aztec lands starting after the Spanish Conquest of the Aztec Empire. These lands were first called the “audencia” of Mexico and included Mexico City, to also include much of modern states of Guerrero, Morelos and Hidalgo. As the Spanish expanded their control west and south, the entirety was called “New Spain” with all former Aztec lands being called “Mexico.” New Spain’s organization would change over the course of the colonial period, but the territory of the Aztecs would keep the name “Mexico”.

As per my research you can expect to find records going all the way back up until 1567.
