Title [Document relating to the descendants of Don Miguel Damián] [art original]
Document Type Manuscript; Art
Description From the Newberry Library Catalogue: A pictorial genealogy of the family of Miguel Damián, indicating names of his wife, his four legitimate children, and one illegitimate daughter, and their respective shares in his estate. Family relationships are shown by cords linking one person with another. Above the family tree are drawings of farm buildings, corrals, orchards, and fields which are divided into portions assigned to a certain son or daughter. Family names appear in Spanish, with Nahuatl words and hieroglyphics describing the cultivated fields. This ms., as well as Plan de plusiers propriètès at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, is believed to be related to litigation between members of the Damian family and Pedronilla Francisca.
