Thank you for taking a look at this.

My husband’s 4th great grandfather was Andres Borjon (b.about 1800-1830), married to Manuela Resendes/Resendez.

Our records show then the Valparaiso, Zacatecas area, specifically Hacienda Carrillo. His spouse was Manuela Resendez about 1800–1894, and the children are:Son Cecilio/Sesilio Borjon 1829–1894 and Daughter Maria "Marequita" Borjon 1830–1918.

There’s a tree on ancestry that merges our Andres Borjon with Jose Andres Borjon Sanchez, from Atotonilco el Alto, son of Jose Ygnacio De Loiola Borjon Garcia (b. 1792), with several generations and extended family in Atotonilco el Alto, Jalisco.

I was excited to see this, because the Atotonilco el Alto Botjon Sanches lines go straight back to Spain.

But on further review, there are no documents linking our Andres with their Jose Andres. It's an assumption based on the names.

I’ve looked for baptismal records that show abuelos, nothing.

Our Zacateca records linking our Andres Borjon to the 3rd great grandparents/aunt are the death records that list Andres and Manuela as the decedent's parents.

I do note that others from Zacatecas seem to originate from Atotonilco el Alto. The areas are very close.

I’d appreciate any suggestions. Are there Atotonilco records that are not indexed or not on Ancestry/Family Search.Org? Are there any genealogy lists that might tell us who their Jose Andres Borjon Sanchez married?

Where should I look?
