Hi to all Nuestro Rancho members,

Can someone look at this half page document for me and rewrite it clearly so I can see what it says?? It is about my ancestor Blas Madera. Thank you.

This is a marriage record For Blas Madera and María Lorenza. It says that he is a widower and that his parents are Joseph Madera and Josepha Velasquez. It seems that they initially forgot to name the parents of Maria Lorenza (Magdalena or Magallanes)

Rick A. Ricci

Literal transcript without abbreviations plus capital letters. In case you need the other little details besides what Mr. Ricci has mentioned.

Not sure if the brides mother's last name is "peres" or "lares". probably the former.
