Page by Page

I am taking a break from the DC heat by looking page by page through the Sonora, Mexico Catholic Church records on FamilySearch. I am hoping to find more information on the family of my 2nd-great-grandmother, Maria Jesus Vasquez, and her parents Gabriel Vasquez and Maria Jesus Suastegui. By going through the Informacion Matrimonial records for the district of Altar, I might find siblings of Gabriel. In these records I have already run across others in the Suastegui family, who were well settled in Altar when Gabriel arrived by 1858. This is a slow process.

My 3rd-great-grandfather Vicente Campuzano appears on 15 April 1860 as a witness for Vicente Grijalva in his intended marriage. The testimony shows he was a zapatero (shoemaker) originally from Arizpe, and includes his signature. This is the type of find that makes slogging through the unindexed pages worthwhile.
