Facts & Finds

Amongst our vast new collection of Mexican transcripts, you
will find a baptism record for José de la Cruz Porfirio Díaz Mori. Diaz was
a Mexican general and politician who served seven terms as President of Mexico,
from 1876 to 1880 and from 1884 to 1911. After deposing the French-imposed
Emperor Maximilian in 1867, Diaz and his allies seized power in a coup in
1876 and went on to rule Mexico for the next thirty-five years during a
period known as the Porfiriato.

members or close friends that were sent to newspapers, are an excellent
resource for learning about your ancestor’s final years. Findmypast is
