Thank you so much for this info! I have been stuck for years with this couple.
I have never been able to find either of their parents and you have solved this
for me. I am so very grateful. Will I be able to find this same info of the
grandparents on familysearch? I live in Ohio and all our films must be ordered
from one of the branches of the LDS Church. Senon Paulino would be my fathers'
4th great grandfather who married a Maria Campos. Senon or Paulino, as some of
his records call him,also had a son, named Rafael Alvarez, married to Viviana
Alva Valensuela. I have never been able to find his documents for his birth or
christening. This couple had a son, Melecio or Melecio Alvarez who would have
been my grandfather and my fathers father. My father, Amador Alvarez,was the
son of Melecio Alvarez and Sara Campos Mota. I have not been able to find birth
or christening record or death records for Melecio or Rafael. Would you be able
to search for these names for me? I
f not it is alright. Perhaps you could tell me where I might be able to search
for them. Thanks again, you have cracked the mystery of Jose Alvarez and Ana or
Francisca Campos for me!!

Warm regards,
Carol (Campos) Lester

married 25 Aug 1836 in Tlaltenango de Sanchez Roman, ZAC (image #558 in
marriages for 1821-40). This names their parents, and notes there was a
dispensation for second degree consanguinity. They might be first cousins!
> I have seen cases where the first names of the women vary a bit: Ana Francisca
could be the same as Maria Francisca; she could have been known as Maria, Ana,
or Francisca in various records. Since the birth records name the grandparents,
this would tend to prove that she used various names

1808, Tlaltenango de Sanchez Roman. Grandparents: Antonio Alvarez/Prudencia Rita

Castaneda and Rafael Cornejo/Rita Carlos
> This is not all the information available for these families, but it is enough
to give you the basic relationships.
> The fact that Jose and his bride are first cousins is unusual, as this is not
something that a dispensation is commonly given for!
> I used the old family search website for the indexes, and then went to the
digitized films for the Zacatecas towns on the new website. Since the records
for these towns appear pretty good, you may be able to go back farther.
