Message from arturoramos2 arturo.ramos2@...

Last month I mentioned that I met with Esteban Valdes Salazar, "cronista" from Totatiche, Jalisco and genealogist who has published a number of very valuable books. He is in the midst of trying to publish a second edition of the now sold out Historia de Totatiche as well as a new book on the genealogy of the Pinedos and Ortegas of Totatiche.

He has transcribed a whole series of early land titles and is the only historian who has seen the old Fransican convent records from Colotlan from the 1600s. He is helping Samuel Sanchez get those filmed as we speak.

He is very strapped for money and is trying to raise money to publish these works and I promised him I would try to get some donations. I have already received some from a couple of generous Ranchos members. My parents are headed back down to Mexico in a couple of weeks and I would like to send the donation down with them. Please let me know if you would be willing to contribute, however small an amount. I will make the donation on behalf of the group and will list the names of the contributors in my letter to him.
