Las Primeras mujeres que pasaron a Nueva España

I came across this link that lists the first Spanish women to come to Mexico (Nueva España) during the first quarter of the XVI century. It was written by Juan Francisco Maura, Associate Professor in Spanish at the University of Vermont.

Noria de San Pantaleon/El Durazno/San Antonio de Belen, Zacatecas

I've just uploaded 4 maps to the albums/maps area of the group primarily
for Ken Alva showing his Ranchos: Noria de San Pantaleon. But I seem to
remember someone else talking about El Durazno and San Antonio de Belen

Tlaltenango Marriages 1600s

I have begun to systematically go through film 0443967 (Tlaltenango Matrimonios 1626-1723) since the film is not indexed. I am up to about 1642 now and about 80-90% of the marriages are for Indios with no surnames. However, there are a few indios with surnames and a few Spanish marriages interspersed there and I imagine that will increase as I go further in time on the film.

Antonio Liendo Senior vs. Junior

This arrival would be for Juan Antonio LIENDO, senior since it is before the birth of the junior. But the time frame seems correct given that you believe the junior was born around 1700.

Update on Family History Library trip

Cojumatlan de Regules, Michoacan - Film Inventory at FHL in SLC
Unfortunately only 1 film number was found. Film number 654633. I see on the catalog listing a few more films showing FHL INTL Film which should mean they are at the FHL in SLC, so this could mean that these films are in High Density location. When ordering your films before a trip, they will check High Density first before ordering from the VAULT. When you get to the library, always check the file drawers to see if your films are in, if not, then go to the window and ask if they are in High Density. They will check their database and either order the film from VAULT or they go back to High Density location and bring them out to the window, usually takes one hour. Don't recall who ask to check this out so I am addressing it to all
