When I was scrolling through archives at the LDS History Center years ago, I came across a Census of ever rancho in our pueblo of Jalisco during the year 1810. It listed all the names of every person living in each rancho. I made copies, but now I don't have the copies.

I can't remember the old word for census that it was under. I want to go back and make some more copies of them.

They are called Padron. Generated by the Parish.

When you do come across it, perhaps you could add it to our reference
files? It sounds like a valuable resource.

Are you referring to Xalisco, Nayarit? If so, I have the 1689 census/padron.

Antonio,

Padron! That's it! Thank you guys!. As soon as I go back, order the microfilm and scroll through them and make copies of the census listing names of every single person at each rancho in our pueblo, I will post them up here.

When I had the copies, I was looking at the Rancho where my Great Great Grandfather was at.

have a look at the files area for misc information in the reference
sections. There is a few photocopies specific to Jalisco, Zacatecas y/o
Aguascalientes padrones from Lyman Platt's excellent book:
