Biography

Hola! I do wish I had time to do all of this full time. This is my gift to those from Silao/Romita since I have amassed such a large database with much of it not available at familysearch. Only a very few are my ancestral lines. And all of it is in rough draft form with much more work to be done by those whose ancestry to whom it belongs. I am putting the basics that I have and hope it will be added to in English or Spanish. Silao has been so neglected and I want to see it on the map and for many genealogists to find their families and relationships with others in Silao/Romita. Gracias.


DNA TESTING
It is my hope that if more find their ancestry in Silao, some will be inclined to do DNA testing, particularly the Y 37 test or more, prefer Family Tree DNA because of their larger database, and find how we are all related.
If you should need assistance with ancestry from Silao, Romita and some from Ciudad Manuel Doblado, I will be gladly check my database. Please send a message with names, dates and places you are searching. Gracias!
NOTES GENERAL:
Postings show the more common spelling of names. The biographies, when possible, reflect what the clerics wrote in the record.
Females in Latin American culture kept their maiden names and it is reflected in postings.
In Latin American culture, all names were considered First Names and usually have been posted that way and then one Preferred Name selected to make it easier to find on wikitree.
For Guanajuato: 1598-1821, the City/Town, Nueva España (Guanajuato, México). After 1821 City/Town, Guanajuato, México.
For Aguascalientes: 1598-1821, the City/Town, Nueva Galicia (Aguascalientes, México). After 1821 City/Town, Aguascalientes, México.
For New Mexico: 1598-1821 City/Town, Nueva España (México). 1821-1848 City/Town, México (Nuevo México). 1848-1912 City/Town, El Territorio de Nuevo México, USA.

NOTES ON ANCESTRAL LINES FROM SILAO, GUANAJUATO, MEXICO:
ANTILLON: While my database is far from complete, all Antillons from 1910 to 1600's have been posted. There is much more info from familysearch.org that needs to be posted.
ARMENTA - Please ask if you have Armenta Ancestral lines. I have quite a few that haven't been posted yet.
CABRERA - When time permits, all Cabrera's found in Silao are being posted. If you don't see yours and they are from Silao, please ask. There is still quite a bit yet to post.
DURAN - Please ask if you have Duran Ancestral lines. I have quite a few that haven't been posted yet.

GUTIERREZ - While my database is far from complete and since there are several who descend from these lines, all male Gutierrez's found in Silao from 1700's to 1600's have been posted in an attempt to find progenitors. There are a few who were born in Yrapuato. There is much more info from familysearch.org that needs to be posted.

NOTE: BEWARE OF ALL THE RULES AND REGS AND MESSES THAT THE DATADOCTORS MAKE. -NOT ALL YNDIOS ARE INDIGENOUS. BESIDES OTHER ERRORS! -IN MEXICO AND OTHER COUNTRIES FEMALES RETAIN THEIR LAST NAME GIVEN AT BIRTH AND DO NOT TAKE THEIR HUSBANDS WHEN THEY MARRY. THE CHURCH RECOGNIZED THIS IN MEXICO AND NEW MEXICO AS DEMONSTRATED IN ALL THE RECORDS. -WHEN DATADOCS JUST DUMP IN HEADERS MAKING A MESS OF BIOS, IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. PERHAPS THE DATADOCS COULD TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE SURE THE HEADERS ARE IN THE CORRECT PLACE IF THEY NEED TO BE INCLUDED SO AS NOT TO MAKE A MESS. WHY NOT INCLUDE THEM INITIALLY LIKE BIOGRAPHY AND SOURCES HAVE BEEN. -I HAD RECRUITED M. ROMO AND ANOTHER PERSON WHO WAS COMING ON BOARD VERY SOON TO HANDLE ABOUT 2000 RECORDS, ADD DIACRITICAL MARKS WHERE APPROPRIATE, TRANSLATE SOME TO SPANISH SO THAT THOSE FROM MEXICO COULD EASILY READ THEM AND ADD TO THEM. MANY OF THE RECORDS I HAVE POSTED ARE IN SPANISH WITH HEADERS IN SPANISH. JUST DUMPING IN HEADERS IN ENGLISH DOESN'T HELP. SO WHAT IS THE RULE, EVERYTHING SHOULD BE IN ENGLISH NOW RATHER THAN ANOTHER LANGUAGE? ALL OF THIS IS MUCH TOO CONFUSING. -AND YOUR "RANGERS" RANGERING NEED TO BE MORE PROFESSIONAL. -THERE ARE TOO MANY ERRORS AND TO UNPROFESSIONAL! -AND NO THANKS ON JOINING THE TEAM OF ERRORS KNOWN AS DATADOCTORS.

Hi Lee,

I am on the Team and got a message that you're having trouble posting 1600s era profiles. Do you know how to take a screenshot? I'd like to see the pages you're seeing so I can try to figure out what's happening. Thanks! Abby

Ah, well, that makes sense.

There is definitely a learning curve when it comes to using WikiTree. Being a shared collaborative tree means we need to have a balance between convenience and protection. I'm sorry you're finding it so user-unfriendly. But thanks for adding all of the info you have added so far! I'm sure the families would be very appreciative.

To my knowledge, the import process itself can take a few days, but once it's completed, those profiles should show up in your Watchlist straightaway.

Perhaps some of your people were automatically excluded? Have a look at the Notes section on this page.
