By josiett - Posted on 10 April 2006

Perhaps someone can guide me in the right direction......my brick wall is
"Zacatecas, Zac." where my ancestor, Juan Antonio Liendo and his wife
Catalina de la Rosa gave birth to their son also named Juan Antonio Liendo.
In the will of Juan Antonio Liendo (the son) he states (in 1771) that he was
"originario de Zacatecas, Zac" but he does not give the name of a Rancho or
any other town. I am assuming he (the son) was born around 1700. My focus
on the SLC trip is to find records on the son and on his parents as well.

Can anyone tell me what towns or ranchos may have existed in or around the
city of Zacatecas in the late 1600s or very early 1700s?

Thanks!

Josie

Josie:

I have uploaded the detail of an 1858 map of Zacatecas showing the surrounding towns and more importantly the mines. It is is the Historical Mexican Maps Album..

As you will note there were several mines around Zacatecas including Panuco and Veta Grande that are now seperate municipalities. There were also the ranchos of Calera and Guadalupe that are now seperate municipalities as well.

These mines were most active right around the time that you are researching. I think there was a mercury shortage in the early 1700s that caused many of the mines to be closed down since they could not process the ore.

Arturo, thanks for the lead. I will study the map and see what I can come
up with. Josie

Hi Arturo,
I have found that there are a lot of "Liendo" surnames in south America,
mainly Peru, Argentina, Brazil, etc. and this looks like it could be a lead;
however, the Will dated 1771 clearly states his mother as Catalina de la
Rosa. I guess I should start looking at the marriage records for the area
to see if the parents married in Zacatecas. I did find an "ultramarino" who
came from Spain named Luis Liendo but his parents were not the ones I am
looking for. This makes me even more determined to find him! Thanks for
the help......if you think of any other ideas to help me, please let me
know.
Josie
