New documents on the Mexican side of the family

I am not sure when Ancestry began to publish records from FamilySearch using their extensive Mexican records collection, but I am glad to find these records now. I ran a search on my Campuzano family, and found a record providing new insight into the origin of my 3rd-great-grandmother, Concepcion Amado (2nd wife of Vicente Antonio Campuzano). The record in question was for the civil registration of marriage for Cirilo Campuzano to Micaela Ortega on 10 March 1893 in Pitiquito, Sonora. It shows Cirilo's father Vicente as deceased and originally from Arizpe, and his mother Concepcion Amado as originally from the pueblo of RayĆ³n, in the district of Ures (located northeast of Hermosillo). This is a new piece of information for me, and may help trace her family line.
 

Cirilo's cousin Gregorio Campuzano was a witness. There are a few more documents, which I will have in a following post.
