Spaouse Guadalupe Zambrano Zambrano 1902 to 1983. Born in La piedad, Michoacan, Cementery Guadalajara Jalisco.

Have you already tried checking the on-line digital images of Civil Registration Death Records and Catholic Church Records for Guadalajara, Mexico in Familysearch?

I have check the census 1930
i dont know what church she was baptize and the civil records are hard to read.
I was hoping to find a Torres cabrera family connection in your family trees.

As far as i know mercede torres cabrera is from guadalajara as per my dads birth records.

Her parents i have no idea they tell me she was very white so her parents may be spanish but nor sure 100%.

I checked Familysearch for Civil Registration Records for Guadalajara. The years 1912, 1913 and 1915 are missing. But there are many Catholic Church Records available for : Jesus, Nuestra Senora del Pilar, Purisima Concepcion, San Juan de Dios, Santuario de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe, Santisima Trinidad, Sagrario Metropolitano,
San Jose de Analco, San Miguel de Espiritu Santo,. Cheer-up, there are another 7 churches that you don't have to check as those records don't cover the years you are researching. You can start on any of the listed churches & look for names in the margin -then learn to check just for the parents names in the body of the record. All the records start the same so find one that is fairly easy to read, print it up and review it so that you are familiar with the the style and where to find the names.
Tell me about your dad--send private e-mail if you prefer. You can reach me at:
