Hello my name is Steven Barrera
I just found out my Great Great Grandfather
was from Mier.
His name was Aniceto Barrera
I have his parents name listed as Cecilio Barrera
and Gertrudis Gonzales not sure if accurate.
Aniceto and his family immigrated to US in 1890 to
Starr County Fronton,Texas
His wife was Dionicia Reyna they had 5 children
4 sons Inocentio,Felipe,Cecilo,Rosindo and one daughter
Matiana. Felipe was my Great Grandfather.
Im not sure if Aniceto is the same person that has been discussed in the forum. Im am interested in finding out
how to get records from Mier and also from
Agualeguas. Any information would be a great help.
Im not sure how to access records from Mexico.
So im hoping someone out there will know more
how to go about obtaining documents.

Thank You

My name is Frank R(i)ojas and my great-great grandparents were Aniceto Barrera and Dionicia Reyna. I think they are the same as yours. I only show two daughters born to them:
Rosa, 1878, Agualeguas, and Maria de los Santos, probably Agualeguas, too. They probably had other children but I haven't found them yet. It may be the ones you mentioned.
Maria de los Santos married Erasmo Riojas in Fronton (Roma) and their son, Danierl R(i)ojas, was my grandfather.
If you would care to correspond, please reply to Perhaps we can help each other out.
Both of my father's parents were Barreras.
