I was looking at archive "Las Indias"

Did a search for "Zacatecas" and filtered by years from 1668 - 1734.

Several old books came up:

https://archive.org/search.php?query=zacatecas&&and[]=year%3A%221737%22&and[]=year%3A%221732%22&and[]=year%3A%221717%22&and[]=year%3A%221715%22&and[]=year%3A%221697%22&and[]=year%3A%221696%22&and[]=year%3A%221668%22

I picked first book which is over 400 pages and year 1668. In the book you can do a search by word which I searched for "huexquilla" Huejuquill El Alto, Jalisco, Mexico's old name. And a detailed description came up:

I've seen a lot of reference to Huejuquilla, but in old Spanish they spelled it Guaxuquilla or Guaxuquiya.

Hi Apozolco,

Thank you for that information. Where can I find more on that but the one in Jalisco (Nuevo Galcia). Not the one in Chihuahua.

You will find them in two parishes....La Yesca & Amatlan de Jora, Nayarit. More in the Amatlan than La Yesca & both early centuries.
