Presentation Information

Title:  From Huichapan to Nuevo Leon

Summary: During the early 1600s, a few years after the definitive founding of Monterrey, another wave of immigrants arrived into the Nuevo Reino de Leon. A large group of Spanish traders, military officers, and cattle ranchers arrived from the town of Huichapan. A few of these families will be studied here.

Title:  Jewish Roots in Nuevo Leon ‐ What documents actually say

Summary: After the initial founding of Monterrey, the arrest and trial of the Carvajal family resulted on the scattering of the kingdom's initial settlers. Most people with ancestry in Nuevo Leon descend from the subsequent migration waves. This session analyzes the question of Jewish origins of these later settlers.
