Ancestry adds 115 databases from Mexico

Ancestry in Mexico? Perhaps a relative choose marriage in a resort setting, or died while on vacation, or maybe escaping the law. Ancestry's collection of Spanish language Mexican databases  have increased to 152 with the addition of 115 last Thursday, October 22.

With over 13.3 million records the largest is  Federal District, Mexico, Civil Registration Deaths, 1861-1987 including 13 unlucky John Smith's. 

Seven of the collections have over five million records. 
Jalisco, Mexico, Civil Registration Deaths, 1856-1987
Oaxaca, Mexico, Civil Registration Deaths, 1861-1987
Jalisco, Mexico, Civil Registration Births, 1857-1947
Jalisco, Mexico, Civil Registration Marriages, 1861-1961
Puebla, Mexico, Catholic Church Records, 1545-1970
Jalisco, Mexico, Catholic Church Records, 1590-1995
San Luis Potosi, Mexico, Civil Registration Deaths, 1860-1987
Michoac√°n, Mexico, Catholic Church Records, 1649-1909
All records are in Spanish. It appears the new civil registration records are indexed while church records are browse only.
