Well, after many years of searching I finally found a record that listed the names of great great grandparents. I am thrilled beyond and beyond.. :) It seems my great grandparents got married in church in 1949 and in Runge, Texas the marriage register lists their date and place of baptism for both my great grandfather and great grandmother. It states that Pilar Valdez was baptized in 1899 at San Miguel Mesquitic, mexico and Romana Tobar was baptized in 1889 Real de Pino, Zacatecas, Mexico. Her parents were Victor Tovar and Maria Guerrero. My problem now is trying to find those records. I have gone through the Zacatecas records in Family Search and found the town of Pino, but not the parish Real de Pino. Can someone tell me if I am even looking in the right place or where I could find this parish? Thanks in advance.

Hi Juanita,

You're on the right track: the name of the town is Pinos, and the parish is San Matias. That's where you want to go.

"Real de Pinos" is the old name of the polity, and before that, "Real de Minas de Sierra de Pinos."

Good luck!

Thank you so much. I was searching everywhere and thought maybe a name change. It is good to have a confirmation. Now, hopefully, I can find them. Again, thanks!
