Dear Victoriano--

I checked one of my sources and found the following:

Joseph Maria NABARRO married
16 Jun 1766 in Ocotlan to
Fernanda Josepha SANABRIA

Their children appear to be:

Joseph Bernardino Senicio NAVARRO born
10 Jun 1767 in Ocotlan

Jop. Antto. Mathias NABARRO born
6 Mar 1771 in Ocotlan

Could these be yours? I could not get anywhere with your other names. Sorry.

Dear Patricia,
Thanks for your message I don't really know for sure if I should be looking for VICTORIANO NAVARRO in Ocotlán.
I found the names of his parents and grandparents in al old family tree prepared in 1935 by one of his grandsons. Recently I was able to confirm the names of his parents (MARIA ENCARNACIÓN SEPEDA & DOMINGO NAVARRO) by finding baptism records of his chidren from northen Coahuila. I still have to find out whether the names of his grandparets (FERNANDA SARAVIA & JOSÉ MARÍA NAVARRO and RAFAEL SEPEDA & ROSA SAUCEDO) are aso correct or not.
I am trying to find a marriage or baptism record for Victoriano himself (hoping to find the names of his grandparents), then I would like to try to find the same for his parents, and only then I could make sure whether the records you mention do correspond or not to my ancestors.
The only source of information regarding Victoriano's Ocotlán origin is a book regarding the Madero famiy genealogy written by Carlos B Madero, the youngest brother of President Fco. Madero. I wonder if he was actually from some other town in Jalisco.
I know Victoriano was born about 1808, but I went to the IGI Indices of bapisms from Ocotlán around 1808 (found in this webpage) and I could not find his name. Do you or somebody else knows if these indices contain ALL the names included in the microfilms? Should I bother looking for his baptism record in these microfms if his name does not appear in the IGI indices?
Thanks again fo the information.
Warmest regards,
Victoriano Navarro
