Researching families of Losoya Texas and surrounding areas. Please keep in mind that this site is a work in progress. Keep checking back for new content. I have a lot of old photographs dating back to the 1880's. I recommend that you visit me in my home and look at them if you live in the area. I am a retired soldier who lives in San Antonio, Texas (God's Country) and have been doing genealogy since 1995. I know there will be many questions. Feel free to e-mail or call.

Hello again, Mr. Andrew Martinez. In response to your photo of transcribing the letter written by los Senores Martinez to the parents of la Senorita Huron. This is a beautiful formal letter asking for the hand of said Senorita Huron. I remember my parents and grandmother saying that this was how the grooms parents went about asking for a marriage meeting for their son with the brides parents. I believe it was called “piede la mano de la novia”.The letter was usually covered in a fancy calligraphy cover and the grooms mom wore a fancy scarf that were both usually presented to the future in-laws at the time of the said meeting. My grandma said that she had a letter and scarf presented to her family ,saved with her trousseau. These items were lost many years later in a flood. I was happy to see your ancestors letters posted in the photo.
Thank you for your comment, I have another letter will be posting soon.
