Is there an English language website for those of us interested in the genealogy of Northern Mexico?
I checked out Genealogica de Norte Mexico, but it is exclusively in Spanish.

My research takes me from Aguascalientes up into Cuatrocienegas/Monclova(colonial capital of Nuevo Santander)/Rio Nuevo/La Madrid/Nadadores in Coahuila de Zaragoza.

As well as to Hidalgo del Parral (San Jose del Parral in the colonial era, the colonial capital of that state) and Santa Barbara, Chihuahua.

For those of you interested in Northern Mexico, or Tortilla de Harina country as we fondly call it, I just read a wonderful book:

LOS PAISANOS.

About the early settledment of Nueva Biscaya/Chihuahua/Durango/Sonora/Sinaloa, Nuevo Leon, New Mexico, what became Arizona,Texas and the Calfironias.

I had no idea Tlaxcallans settled in Coahuila in the post conqust era with royal approval and support.

Also, that there were black slaves in Parral. Chihuahua is so white today, its hard to believe that substantial African blood was absorbed into the mainstream population.

Jonathan Walker's mexicanfhr yahoo group covers all of Mexico:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mexicanfhr/

I would strongly recommend that group over the Ciudad Juarez group that
is pretty much dead.

Nathan, like you, I was surprised about my connection with the tlaxcaltecos
being relocated in Coahuila. However, my research led me to understand that
these Indians were brought into the area to "civilize" existing nomadic
tribes. This was often done throughout Mexico, and it was done in Zacatecas as
well. Anyway, I offer you a glimpse of my family tree from Coahuila -
Nadadores is where the original name "Bermea" appears - which is "tlacalteco". An
interesting side note is that the northern part of Coahuila has served as
refuge for other Native American Nations such as the Kickapoo and Cherokee -
Sequoyah (inventor of Cherokee alphabet) is buried there. Esperanza

Villarreal branch from Rosales came from Hidalgo,
N.L. It was known as "El Pueblito" and when I started investigating my roots
. Later we found that Hidalgo was founded as Nuestra Senora del Pueblito.
All 3 families Villarreal, Elizondo and Trevino moved to Rosales
around 1820. The Bermea family was already living in Villa de Gigedo.

My great-grandmother Maria de Los Santos Bermea Arreola, born June 3, 1867,
daughter of Julian Bermea Gomez
and Romana Arreola. Julian had 5 other brothers:
Norberto,Margarita,Ricardo,Anastasia and Francisco Bermea married to Timotea
Trevino..

Julian was the son of Diego Bermea and Timotea Gomez, married at Gigedo on
April 28, 1819.

Diego's parents were Joaquin Bermea and Brigida Hernandez, married abt.
1795, same village.

Joaquin had 3 brothers that I found: Mathias, Mateo and Josepha.

Their parents were Thomas Bermeo and Juana Flores, married en Villa de
Gigedo on Jan. 27,1762.

Brother of Thomas was Lucas Bermeo married to Maria
Andrea Flores on Feb. 15,1768.

Their parents were Gaspar Bermeo and Ma. Candelaria de los Rios married
about 1742.

On the marriage record of Thomas Bermeo and Juana Flores it is mentioned
that They were "indios tlaxcaltecos" and their parents origin was
Nadadores,Coahuila, this is a small town close to Cuatro Cienegas.

That is absolutely fascinating!
