Research Strategies[edit | edit source]

Who to search for? If you don’t know the names of the parents, but you know the name of the spouse and/or the names of some of his children, begin with a marriage search (if they married in Mexico and you know the place). Or, begin with a search for the birth/baptism record for one of their children (if you have an approximate birth date and place).
