I'm writing an English language guide to the genealogy and history of Chihuahua that I think will be of use to everyone tracing their roots to Chihuahua.

I need additional source material. In particular books on Chihuahua's history and genealogy as well as family narratives. There must be several hundred books on the subject, virtualy 99% in Spanish, most out of print, most had small print runs in the first place, many were printed by small concerns in out of the way towns and pueblos.

I can translate and synthesize all the information into one English language source.

If you have a book that might be of help, please let me know. If you donate a book, or pamphlet you will receive a copy of the completed study.

If you rather sell your material, I'm willing to buy.

Used, worn out copies are just fine. I'm not looking for a handsome library, just a lot of information.

You are welcome to donate scans of your family photos of Chihuahua. Pictures of people and places, the landscape, the way life used to be.

I have hundreds of pictrures already, but you never know what might show up.

I don't intend this to be the typical Pancho Villa dominated story. It will tell the story of all of our people, all our families, not just mine.

I think I can paint an exciting and accurate narrative as well as supply the facts and create a guide.

Estimado Nathan:

Mi inglés no es muy fluído y por tal motivo te contesto en español. Estoy enterado de tus actividades acerca de la historia y la gente del estado de Chihuahua. Lamento informarte, que en este momento, no tengo nada relativo a ese estado. Mis raíces familiares vienen del estado de Zacatecas y conozco algo de esto. Sin embargo, en virtud de tu interés, trataré de informarme de algún tema relacionado con tus objetivos. Atte. Salvador.
