Travel Tuesday - Taxi Driver

My great-grandfather Plutarco Campuzano had a brother, Vicente Campuzano (named after his father, my 2nd-great-grandfather Vicente Plutarco Campuzano). Vicente Jr crossed the border between Arizona and Sonora on 27 September 1950. The border crossing entry shows that he was a taxi driver at the time.
This record is very helpful for a number of reasons. Besides the inclusion of a photo for Vicente Jr and his signature, it lists his mother was Jesus Vasquez. On other records she is listed as Maria Jesus Vasquez. There are more crossing records for Vicente Jr, which is helpful in piecing together the dates for when Vicente Sr was in Arizona.

  1. What an unusual archive to discover on an ancestor, particularly with the inclusion of a photograph. A great find!

  2. Thanks Susan. The US-Mexico Border Crossing records have been a huge resource for me. Finding my Granny, great-grandparents and even 2nd-great-grandparents in those records has been wonderful.
