I have been curious about slaves in Nueva Espana because when I had watched the TV Series "Roots" about slaves in the USA. I was impacted by the suffering they went through.

So I have been trying to look at documents about "esclavos" that were taken to Nueva Espana but they were also taken to other parts of the Americas such as Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Repulic, etc.

When I had seen in the pars website, I saw that slaves were picked up mostly at "New Guniea and Angola" that were brought to Nueva Espana but they were first brought to Cuba.

If you look up "esclavos"

But out of random when viewing defunto records in Xerez? I randomly saw esclavos that said they were from "El Congo."

In the archives of aguascalientes, there were slaves sold at "Real De Asientos" and "Aguascalientes." You can look that up in the Aguascalientes archives under "Compraventa de Esclavos"

Over at "Real De Asientos" there is a building that looks like in a desolate area called "Galeron de esclavos." But now it seems to not be anymore on tourist websites. I used to see it years ago and also saw a youtube on that. Now, they are practically all gone.

If you look in images in google "Galeron De Esclavos Real De Asientos Aguascalientes" you can see only two pictures of that place.

That's very interesting although sad. I have also been surprised by the quantity of "esclavo" notes in the birth and marriages records in Mexico. Many are "libres", but not all, both "negros" and mulatos.

According to Ancestry dna, I have genes from West Africa (Gambia Senegal and Guinea-Bissau - not the areas on the Gulf og Guinea) and southwest Africa (Cameroun, Angola, Namibia, Gabon, and Congo). In church records I have found ancestors noted as mulatto libre and at least one as mulatto esclavo. Very interesting for me!

Very very interesting! I have just ordered my DNA kit and am eager to see what is going to be discovered!

Hola a todos.

En el blog del Arq. Rodolfo Hernández Chávez, quien es cronista de Encarnación de Díaz Jalisco, llamado "Historias y Recuerdos de Encarnación" hay una sección llamada Esclavos o libres, en donde describe la introducción de esclavos tanto en Jalisco como en Aguascalientes. Cita algunas fuentes importantes como los estudios sobre la esclavitud de Celina Becerra y el libro Esclavitud en Lagos del historiador Mario Gómez Mata.

Uno de los puntos importantes es el señalamiento que hace del que Don Pedro Mateos de Ortega, que fue uno de los titulares del Mayorazgo de Ciénega de Mata que incluye territorios tanto de Jalisco como de Aguascalientes introdujo muchos esclavos en dicha zona.

Como experiencia personal investigué a los antepasados de un tío bisabuelo (político o in law) cuyos descendientes son de Aguascalientes llegando a la existencia de dos abuelas décimas del siglo XVI que fueron esclavas negras. Algunos de sus rasgos aun se mantienen en los descendientes aunque el color de la piel de ellos es claro.

Saludos

Marcelina
