Church Record Sunday - Baptism of Vicente Campuzano

Below is an image from the Mexico, Catholic Church collection on FamilySearch, showing the baptism of my 2nd-great-grandfather, Vicente Campuzano, as performed by Bertolome Suastegui in Altar, Sonora on 26 June 1862. Father Suastegui would later witness Vicente's marriage to Maria Jesus Vasquez on 5 February 1890.

Vicente also later served as witness in the marriage of Guillermo Dias and Conrada Olacha in February 1889, signing the papers next to the signature of Father Suastegui.

The Mexico, Catholic Church record collection is an outstanding archive (one that would be made immensely easier to use with a good index). This set covers parish records from 1550 to 1908 and nearly 16.6 million images. If you had family who came from Mexico, I highly recommend searching this set.
