In my research I am confused about my gmother's name. In her Bap. it reads Teodora. In her church record it reads Maria Dolores. In different bap. records of her gkids it either or, Is Teodora the same as Maria Dolores is my question? Also there is mention about the 117 families sent to los Altos to colonize the area, in the forum posting recently,can one tell me where I could buy books or articles on the subject.

Also what about misspelled names on Familysearch.org, how to correct. Appreciate any info.

In my many film look-ups I came across many similar name differences. Perhaps her name was Teodora Maria(de los) Dolores? I find many instances where the either name is used.

Re: misspelled names: quite often many log entries in baptisimal/marriage the priest wrote in names phoenetically.
WHAT TO BE ALERT TO:  Expect many variations of name spellings.
"b" can be "v", i.e. Baldez for Valdez, Vanuelos for Banuelos, Vorrego for Borrego, Chabes for Chavez
"s" can be "c" or a “z“, i.e. Senteno, Centeno, Zenteno or Cilla for Silla
“j” can be “x”, Jimenez, Ximenez, Jaime Xaime, Javier, Xavier

“r” can be “rr”, Carrillo, Carillo, Cariyo,

“t’” is written the same height as the other letters and can be mistaken for an “r” or “c”
“y” is often a “ll” or even an “i“, i.e. Ayala, Allala, Mayorga, Maiorga, Montoya, Montolla

in many parishes the local custom uses the “ph” for “f” i.e., Phelipe for Felipe or Josepha for Josefa
sometimes the "h" is dropped off a name altogether. i.e. Haro, Aro, Holguin, Olguin, Hernandez, Ernandes, etc. OR the “h” is added where you don’t expect it. i.e. Hortis for Ortis or Hortega for Ortega.

Expect many variations of abbreviations, including the same names.

Before I started genealogy research I would joke with my cousins saying
everybody in Lagos is related to each other. Due to my genealogy research I
have seen how true a statement that is and not just a joke.

I'm glad to have found someone with a similar problem... It makes a little more sense to me now with the reasons given above. I also have a 3rd Great Grandmother who went by "Dolores" (and once in a while, "Maria Dolores") on old records, yet on her birth record (I'm pretty sure its hers) she is "Maria Miguela de los Dolores Arellano Ximenes" (the last two being surnames). I always wondered why she wouldn't just go by "Miguela"? She married Pedro Correa in 1869 in Teul de Gonzalez Ortega, and named one of her daughters "Dolores" too... (she was a sister to my grandmother's grandfather Ramon Correa y Arellano). Anyway, good luck in your research!
