Re: Tetela de Ocampo / Morales

Unfortunately I don't have any information for the town of Tetela de Ocampo.

Note however that you are able to borrow microfilm of archival documents that will likely have information on your great-grandparents. Specifically, the church archives (1647-1964) for María de la Asunción (Tetela de Ocampo, Puebla) are available on 149 rolls of microfilm. These include baptisms, marriages and marriage banns (the marriage banns can have many details on those getting married and their family), and burials. If you could find these records for your ancestors, it would give you a lot of information about them. Note that once you go back a few generations, it is useful to research the brothers and sisters of your ancestors, as well, as sometimes that is the only way you will find information about your own ancestors.

Also, some of the microfilm has been indexed online, showing names and dates (but the microfilmed images of the original documents will have much more information). These indexes may help you quickly find documents and know which film to order.

The indexes are available on (especially the International Genealogical Index (IGI)).

Also available in microfilm is the 1930 census of Tetela, as well as civil registry archives from 1867-1917 (these include births and deaths and can have details not found in church records; or when church records are not available).

Finally, this microfilm can be ordered at various libraries in Belgium (see the list below).

I hope this helps.

Much luck,
