WITH ALL ARMS, A Study of a Kindred Group
HISPANIC GENEALOGY
Author: Carl L. Duaine

Price: $100
Shipping: $7

Edited by Laurence A. Duaine. This classic work in Hispanic genealogy(1st Ed, 1988) has been revised and edited by Alan Duaine, the author's son with minor corrections while retaining the original text. The index has been significantly expanded to record all names mentioned in the text, with the bibliography similarly extended. Noted historian and illustrator, Jack Jackson from Austin, Texas, has contributed 15 masterful and dramatic pen and ink sketches. A major objective of this edition has been to make it available and affordable to new generations of readers and researchers.
With All Arms has become the "bible" for persons with roots in Northern Mexico. Duaine found-in the study of the ancestry of his mother, the daughter of Juan Rios and Macedonia Ramírez, both from Mier, Mexico-that many of the families who settled along the Rio Grande were related and that his grandmother's line tied in with many of the 150-200 families who settled New Spain's Northeastern Frontier. Major sources for the study came from civil and church records in Texas and Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, Coahuila, Durango and Zacatecas in Mexico. Austin, Texas 2004 Las Animas Press, 2nd Ed., 404 Pgs.,(with dust jacket) 8 &1/2 x 11 size, HB.
