This blog can assume many purposes after several people have responded to the question, “Who do I come from?” Finding Miguel Ayala’s birth or baptismal records would be a great place to start. The mysterious part of this quest is the ages of Miguel and Francisca at the time of the birth of their third child, Tiburcio Atanacio. His birth record shows them, respectively, age 43 for Miguel and age 34 for Francisca. Tiburcio’s birth is recorded in Angamacutiro de la Union, Prefecture of Puruandiro, Michoacan, Mexico and shows he was born in Santiago de la Union. His birth date is 11 August 1886. This record was recorded on 14 August 1886. If those were their ages, Miguel must have been born in the year 1843 and Francisca in the year 1852. I seems peculiar that Miguel would have a third child at 43 years of age. His firstborn child, Maria Ignacia Blasa was born in January of 1880 and the second child, Rosario, was born in March of 1881. I don’t comment on the ages of Miguel and Francisca when these first two children were born because neither of their birth or baptismal records show the ages of the parents.
And so it goes. I am searching for their birth/baptismal records to establish where and when Miguel and Francisca were born so I an find La Casa de Ayala.
