Old Spanish Records

Hello, every one. I am working on a project that needs your help. I want to add Old Spanish Documents to the Achieves on the Website. What I mean by this is copies of Old Wills, land transactions, or other documents normally found in the Bexar Achieves. I am specifically looking for wills and land transactions belonging to Canary Island settlers to start. You can help by sending me either PDF's or MS Word documents that you may have. Please include the source of the information if you have it.

Thanks for your help and support, I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Old Spanish Records

Working on our Genealogy, we have discovered the possibilities of Land grants to our ancestors of my father on both sides.
Being new to this, we have no idea how to verify if in fact we are descendants of both of these lineages. My brother in San Antonio will be searching for birth and death records in the next few days. Are there other avenues we can look into?
Our Great Grandmother was named Antonia Tarin, and our family spoke often of the family being Islanders. I found Antonio and Vicente Tarin on your listing but I'm confused as to their being Tejanos and not originally Islanders. Can you guide us as where to look? We also came across another family that had been researching the Tarin family, but they strongly insisted there were two separate families. They did not offer any of their information.
The other lineage is Santiago Lopez of Elmendorf.
A few years back, we obtained some property deed copies fro Antonia Tarin de Sauceda to our Grandmother Olivia w. Lopez and Grandfather Santiago Lopez possibly a wedding gift.

Love your website, very informative!
