I agree that this was a great idea to pose our brick walls to those who attended the conference. As a member of the Nueva Galicia Genealogical Society, we have some of our brick walls posted on our website already.
Earlier this month, I attended the Conference, and have already benefited from this exercise. Another attendee, Jerry Munoz was able to help me with one of my brick walls. His assistance helped me greatly with my San Juan de los Lagos, Jal. del Portillo and Gallardo lines. I only hope that I can help the individual whose information I drew. I am working on it.

I look forward to attending the next conference in Southern California. I hope that Ranchos members from the south can make it happen.

At the Nueva Galicia Genealogical Society conference held March 6, 2010, they had a "brick wall" demo family tree with paper cut-out leaves on it. The idea was that a member could write down on a paper leaf his/her "brick wall" in his own genealogy research and perhaps someone else would choose his/her leaf and help break through it. I think it's a great concept, except that it might've been better to let any and all choose the same leaf.

My question is this: since we already experience daily with questions from various members, why couldn't each of us create a file/folder listing our own "brick walls" in it? These files could stay permanent and updated as needed.

Perhaps other members could browse through these files and find one that they could tackle and help break through it? In addition to periodic inquiries of our members, this might prove to be a good challenge for our own genalogists that love mysteries?

Just a thought.

Irma,

That's great news that you benefitted from the help of someone who volunteered to help with someone's brick wall.

I hope to assist one of our newest members with the beginning of his research and while it might not be a "brick wall" per say, it is a wall.

In the beginning, you don't really have a clear path or idea  as to how to begin or proceed with your research, thus if feels like a brick wall.

Thanks everyone for your input.
Alicia

Great idea Jose,

Here is my brick wall:

For years I have looked and looked for anything on my father's maternal ancestors. His paternal ancestors I was able to track clear back to the late 1600s in Jerez, Zac. with the help of several members of NR.

I cannot find my father's mother or her parents anywhere. Her name was Gorgonia Garcia, the daughter of Ignacio Garcia and Maria Guadalupe Rodriguez, very common surnames. I can't find anything on my father or his sister, either. I did find the information on their father, which is why I was able to track those to the late 1600s.

My father was born in Jerez in 1903, and his sister was born in nearby Guadalupe a few years earlier, so Gorgonia had to have been living in Jerez or Guadalupe at one time. The records for the first years of the 20th century were burned during the revolution--that is what a priest in Jerez told my father. Gorgonia died when my father was a toddler, so all he knew about her was her name and the names of her parents.

Ed, I have the following film at my FHC for the dates that my father (Guadalupe Olague, born Jan. 28, 1903 in Jerez) was born, but I don't find him listed there:

0439867 Baptisms 1899-1903 Iglesia Immaculada

I also have never found a marriage listed for Gorgonia Garcia and my grandfather Francisco Olague. Maybe they weren't married and maybe they never baptized their children. I guess Gorgonia will remain a mystery.

Thanks,

Emilie

If they ever came to the United States there should be border crossing
information on them that might indicate place of birth parents etc....
Additionally in the US censuses it usually indicates in what year they
immigrated to the USA. If you can find that information it should help you
to locate your ancestors. In the boarder crossings pay close attention to
who your ancestors are going to visit or traveling with them. Back then very
few people crossed illegally. You can access border crossing records and
census records at Ancestry.com. If your ancestors were in Mexico in 1930
that census is available online at http://pilot.familysearch.org but you
have to know the municipality and city and state where they resided. it will
give the age how long they have been married children and ages of the
children. Good luck!

Ed,

No, Gorgonia died in Mexico at the turn of the 20th century when my father was a toddler. His father immigrated with him and his sister and his brother and his family in 1913 when my father was 10 years old, and they never returned to Mexico except that one time in the early 1960s when my father went to Jerez to try to get his birth certificate he needed to get his retirement from Westinghouse. There were no records, so my father paid a lawyer and a judge in Jerez to give him one. My father became a naturalized US citizen in 1941, and I sent for those records but they only state that his parents were born in Mexico, no city, etc.

So did you look at the border crossing records for each individual that
immigrated? There is also the possibility that members of the family visited
the US or went to Mexico when children were born and baptized or for
marriages or deaths. They did not necesarily need to be your grandfather but
could have been one of his siblings, parents, uncles, cousins, etc.... So,
their could be additional border crossings. These records are not the same
as the naturalization record. Often they will give the place of birth, age,
traveling companions, place traveling too, people they are going to visit,
different dates in which they had entered the US. If it were my family, I
would definitely look for them.

Lety -

Yes, Salvador, who is a member of NR, and another person in Mexico City and one in Jerez and one in California are the ones who were able to help me the most with my trees on my Olague/Arellano side. In fact, Salvador's tree is the same as mine when you go back several generations, and he downloaded my tree from Rootsweb and he merged it with his so that I could get those ancestors we share from way back in the 1700s and late 1600s. I just haven't uploaded my revised tree to NR yet because I don't know how.

What happened is that the records in Jerez are almost complete for the Olague/Arellano, but there is nothing on my father himself or his sister or his mother's parents. I think the records from 1890 to 1903 were burned or maybe not microfilmed, or my father and his sister were not baptized. I can't find a marriage record for Francisco and Gorgonio either.

Thank you for your time; I appreciate it.
