A Mexico civil death registration record confirms that great-aunt Celedenia Robledo died at just 18 months of age, one year prior to the family immigrated to the U.S. She is the older sister that my grandfather never knew.

Don't Give Up If You Can't Find Your Ancestor When Searching FamilySearch Mexico Records

If you only use the Search feature to look for records on FamilySearch pertaining to your Mexican ancestors, you may be missing out on these very records. Examples from my own research show that the records are there, but just are not yet searchable.

I met with Dr. Piroutek and his staff for the first time today (referred by a coworker and friend). He was great. The staff is great. All very very gentle, friendly, and considerate -- particularly to patients like me who are terrified of the dentist (I had Dr. Tony Protopappas as a child, the murderer dentist from Orange County). I went in forcibly due to a tooth that broke on Friday, and had full X-rays and exams today, as well as my first cleaning. I go back for a temporary, and then permanent crown for the broken tooth. I went in extremely nervous, and left very relieved and happy. The doctor is great. And I love that he doesn't try to talk patients into unnecessary work; he is also very willing to schedule things out as needed across multiple insurance years.

Good, fun, fusion sushi flavors. Traditional sushi is not their style. A bit overpriced for us to eat at every time we crave sushi.
