The Tarahmara natives are an ancient people who still live in dispersed settlements in southwestern Chihuahua. Spanish Jesuits converted many of the Tarahumares when establishing the mission system during the 15th century. Since many of the Tarahmares are Catholic you may find batismal records of your ancestor in Chihuahua or perhaps Ciudad Parral. Anthony Quinn the American movie actor wrote a biography a couple of years ago. He tells of his Tarahumara grandmother. Anthony Quin was born in Ciudad Parral. Why am I interested - because my grandfather was half Tamahumara and was born also in Ciudad Parral. Good luck.
