Hi

If you want to find a testament for someone who died in 1641 in Aguascalientes, and where it is stated in the death entry that he had heirs (seven children altogether) where do you look? I could only find links to baptisms, confirmaciones, defunciones, info matr, and matrimonios. The person I am researching is Juan Sotelo. I am trying to find out if and how he is related to Francisco Sotelo, and who his parents were.

Regards
Denise

Thanks Manny and Arturo for the tips! However, my laptop won't cooperate...So I hope another researcher interested in the Sotelos will check out the will Juan Sotelo left! I can only get as far as New Query - at which point the Query page will not open.

Regards
Denise

Hello Denise et al

Some time ago I had already searched for information in this site and at that time somehow I was able to browse through the files succesfully (serendipity), yesterday I visited the site again and I wouldn´t have had succes had I not seen the tip Armando gave us.

I looked for Juan Sotelos will and it seems to me that it is not available, it doesn´t appear, well, I forgot trying "JUAN ARIAS" maybe that could bring some results.

I did see a document dated on 1654 concerning one Sotelo but it is not Juan, it is a lease contract between Don Francisco de Sotelo and a Mr. Quixas : Mr Quixas is reported as the owner of two houses with orchards and he rents them to Mr. Sotelo; they agree on the price and time frame, etc.. I saw many documents listed containing interesting lastnames as Ruíz de Esparza and Siordia, etc. but most of them are dated in the mid 1700´s.

Juan´s last will must be somewhere and somebody will find it sonner or later, however, another very important will : Fernando de Sotelo´s last will may not be that imposible to find since we already know that it was written in 1625 , some short days before his death in the same year as el padre Ibarrola reports in his book. I´m sure el padre Ibarrola saw the will so it has to be in Morelia´s church files.

As you already know, Morelia´s files in familysearch are hundreds of documents with hundreds of images but knowing the year of the "problem" file will help a lot.
