Hi everyone,

I found my GG-Grand father's marriage record. I would greatly appreciate a second opinion trying to figure out the name of place he was from.

He is Mateo Hernandes married to Basilia Gonzales. I can make out the following:

"originario y vecino del Sauci-to(?)" The word is cut off, but finishes on the next line. I believe it says Saucito. I did find "El Saucito" near San Miguel el Alto, where the marriage took place.

I would love confirmation or a second opinion. If so, does anyone have anything regarding los Hernandes del Saucito?

Hi Cherna,

Yes you have it correct, it's El Saucito.

Thank you,

Thank you Esther! I thought so, just needed some confirmation.

It looks like El Saucito is actually closer to Santa Maria del Valle, than to San Miguel el Alto. Which makes sense, since many of their children (including my GGrandfather) were born near there.

Thank you,
