I have a question about Mier. I have read many books and they mention that Mier was not part of the villas that received government money or help. They were a self sufficient villa and they left Camargo to settle in Mier without government help. Are they still considered part of the villas?
Irma, regardless if they got help or not wich they did nto . It is still a Villa del Norte. Villa just meant that it was basically a Village, then it eventually became a city.
Thanks, but I was just validating that it was not dependent on governors help from the crown. Its such a beautiful town! Both our ancestors lived in Mier. The Hinojosa, The Bazan…….
Yup, Escandon writes that it was founded with no cost what so ever to the crown.
I’m glad you had that list of books you have. Now, I know that I can at least find the majority of them in one place. I’ve started so many ways to keep track of what I want to read, but needless to say each attempt has been better than the previous. Thank you.
A simpel exel spreadsheet should be enough to keep track. That’s what I use.
