Is there any more information on Eutiquio you can provide?

e.g. Mexican city/state Eutiquio was born in, wife name, etc.
Family Search doe show quite a few on Eutiquio Vela.  Do you have more information on how you arrived at Eutiquio Vela?  Children?  Those records may give clues as to location.


Please help us identify if Eutiquio Vela is also Guadalupe Vela. This individual appears to be born in 1873, however it is listed as both female and male. We believe that it is the same person. The christening records show this individual as a female not male. The records identified both individual from Mier, Tamaulipa, Mexico, born to Severo Vela and Estefana Garcia...
There is an Eutiquio Vela christened in the same place on 05 Jan 1862:


This Eutiquio was the son of Cesareo Vela and Maria Ursula Peña.

May this Eutiquio be the one you're looking for?

There was a Guadalupe Vela (male) married to Jobita/Jovita Casso/Cases whose children were christened in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, México:

There also was an Eutiquio Vela (the one in my previous comment) married to Agustina Rodriguez whose children were christened in the same city and in the same time frame:

The FamilySearch extracted Mexican baptismal records go to about 1880 in many areas. The civil records start in the late 1850s, spreading throughout Mexico in the 1860s.

It should be possible to find his baptismal record, or birth record, but you need to have some idea of where he was born.

If he married in Mexico, and you can find his marriage record, that record will most likely given his parents names and where they were from. In some places the parents names are not in the church marriage record, but will be in the matrimonial investigation, these are online at FamilySearch. In some areas civil marriage records name the grand parents.

I took a cursory look in FamilySearch, and this name is not that uncommon.

Use FamilySearch and Ancestry together, as the indexed records complement each other.
