Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about the era of Mexican rule over Texas and the Mexican colonization policy through the empresario system. We discuss Austin’s colony and the three indexes for finding colonists – the original Register of Families, the Index to Land [Applications] compiled by George W. Glass, and the Villamae Williams translated/typed index which is available on Ancestry.com. We discuss character certificates and DeLeon’s colony as well.
