The mother lode and most awaited collection of Mexican Records is online at Ancestry.com. They are the Mexican Civil Registration records dating from 1859 up to the 2000’s in some instances. Up until now we could only browse through them at Familysearch.org. I recently got an email from David Reta letting me know that they were available at ancestry.com David, thank you!
I checked them out and this is what Ancestry has on their website:
We have added more than 250 million Mexican birth, marriage, death, and church records—plus U.S. census, border crossing, and naturalization records. Select view all countries to to see the collections added.
In total they added 97 New Collections pertaining to Mexican Birth, Marriage, Death, and even some church records. All of these collections were just added this past 22nd of October.
You can see all the civil registry records added here: View All Civil Registration Records at Ancestry.com

Let me know your opinion about these records and or your discoveries int he comments section of this post. Once again thanks David Reta.
