Can anybody recommend some good books...even though they may be out of print, to research the Mexican state of Michoacan?

For Nueva Galicia in general there are books like “Retoños de España en la Nueva Galicia”
by Mariano González-Leal.

or Diccionario biográfico del occidente novohispano by Hillerkuss.

and even Blasones Y Apellidos.

But what are your go to books for Michoacan? Any advice would help. Gracias.

2 recomendations:

1. PARTIDOS Y PADRONES DEL OBISPADO DE MICHOACAN 1680-1685. Lots of census for many places in michoacan

2. I would visit LIBRERIA COLMICH. they are part of the COLEGIO DE MICHOACAN. The bookstore has many books for michoacan and colima. I have bought in the past books from them. I don't know if they ship out of the country you would have to ask. Best source for books for the area

I hope this helps
