Mexican Map Search, Mapoteca Manuel Orozco y Berra
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

There is a place to do Mexican Map Search, Mapoteca Manuel Orozco y Berra and it contains a collection of maps that can help you find old maps of Mexico, its states, and cities.

Maps play an important role when it comes to Mexican genealogical research. They help us identify long gone haciendas, towns, and even cities, as is the case with Guerrero (Revilla), Tamaulipas. Not to mention they also help us locate the ones whose name has been changed.

Manuel Orozco y Berra (June 8, 1816 – January 27, 1881) was a Mexican historian and a member of the Mexican Academy of Language. He was born and died in Mexico City. Some digital maps from his collection have been digitized and are available online on a website provided by the Secretary of Agricultura, Ganaderia, Desarrollo Rural, Pesca y Alimentacion.

  1. I hope they continue to digitize more of the maps. I see many in Tamaulipas I would love to explore. I did find one for the region of Victoria, Jimenez, and Burgos I found useful. It shows the rancho just outside of town that many of the births in my Gonzalez line are registered. Unfortunately, it was not dated, but if they are part of his collection, I would like to assume it is a map from a period up until his death.
    Thanks for the reference.
