Found a Padron for the year 1861 for the municipal of Degollado, Jalisco


I found a padron from 1861 when the municipal of Degollado was created.

New theory about the parents of Juan de la Torre (married to Juana de Gamboa)
I'm still working with land records. I'm submitting the following information:

I'm looking for any informacion about 2 couples that I found in a Land Record in Tlaltenango. Both couples are mentioned in the history of the same property


Aside from Mexican civil and church records, what type of medical records would have been kept that would document a persons death, particularly when an epidemic struck?
