Hi,

I have an ancestor name Antonio Madera that was residing in Minillas near Mezquitic, Jalisco and Monte Escobedo, Zacatecas.

I am quite sure he passed away in 1709 by circumstantial data where in 1708 he referenced in a baptismo record of being alive and in 1710 again he was referenced in a baptismo record of being defunto where that has me assuming he passed away in 1709 but there are no records of that year in the familysearch.org website.

Does anyone have access to defunto records of 1709 give plus/minus 2 years around that? He was married to Maria Candelaria Angon who passed away in 1735 and her defunto record is in Monte Escobedo, Zacatecas.

I am also wondering that since the "Real Audencia" Government of Guadalajara, Jalisco and the Obispo of Catholic Archdiocese of Guadalajara, Jalisco had jurisdiccion of the provinces of "Nueva Galicia (Zacatecas, Jalisco, Aguascalientes), Durango, Nayarit, Coahuila, Los Californias, Texas during that time period, might contain the base of all records?

But after Mexican Independence from Spain and the Government Authority shifted to Mexico City as the Central Authority of all the provinces had the records from the colonial era that were archived in Guadalajara moved to Mexico City????

Yeah, that's happened to me multiple times. I have the same problem in Fresnillo, Zacatecas where the records also don't exist. I'm not sure how you can solve that problem.
