Dallas Genealogical Society: The First Official History of Texas (1630-1690)  (Other Society/Organization)
11:00 am to 12:30 pm
This meeting will be streamed live over the Internet.
Presenter: Gus Hinojosa
In the seventeenth century, South Texas and Northeastern Mexico formed El Nuevo Reino de León, a frontier province of New Spain. In 1690, Juan Bautista Chapa penned a richly detailed history of Nuevo León for the years 1630 to 1690. Although his Historia de Nuevo León was not published until 1909, it has since been acclaimed as the key contemporary document for any historical study of Spanish colonial Texas.
