Title [Genealogy of Pedronilla and Juliana] [art original]
Date
Document Type Manuscript; Art
Description From the Newberry Library Catalogue: A pictorial genealogy of 20 Indians in four generations, with Petronilla, Felipe, Constantino, and Juliana identified by glosses. The ms., related to property litigation between Pedronilla and Juliana, both Indians of Xochimilco, shows the legitimate and bastard lines of the family, which appear to be related. Family relationships are shown by cords linking one person with another, and with dotted lines and speech scrolls indicating illegitimate relationships. There are four names in Spanish, with one Indian name glyph. There is also a small drawing of the same farm which, in Ayer Ms. 1901 [[Document concerning property of Pedronilla Francisca and Constantino San Felipe] [art original]], is shown as belonging to Juliana.
