Talk:El Oro de Hidalgo

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Recently I found a trove of pictures, documents and articles about my family that used to live and work in El Oro back at the turn of the century. I've never been to El Oro but now I am planning to go. My great grandparents migrated from what was then the Austro-Hungarian Empire (now N.Italy) in 1901 and settled in El Oro. My great grandfather was a manager in one of the mines. I'm not sure which one, but he worked there. I have some great photos of him and some of the miners. Family lore has it that during the mexican revolution El Oro was raided by forces loyal to Zapata and rampaged through the town. As a youngster my grandfather told me stories but I never listened too carefully to them. I didn't care so much about those things then but now I do. So, what I'm interested in is getting some kind of history of the town or more specifically a history of the mining industry. I've read bits and pieces about El Oro but nothing exhaustive. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.200.118.146 (talk) 14:15, 20 July 2009

One or two images might be of interest to readers, if you were prepared to release them under public domain or GFDL licensing, but note that Wikipedia is not the place for an extensive collection of family snaps. Also note that Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, so first person testimony, and "family lore" without supporting references from reliable sources, are not acceptable. However, some of your ancestors' experiences might be of interest if they could be supported by references (book, news, web, etc.) You might also find the articles in Category:Mining in Mexico of interest.

The name of this article[edit]

The name of the town is "El Oro de Hidalgo" and the municipality name is just "El Oro". There is an Spanish article that should be merge with this one, the URL is: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Oro_(Estado_de_M%C3%A9xico). But maybe first we need to separate the town from the municipality. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smonroy (talkcontribs) 16:29, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
