The baptism above is important because it provides Pedo Salazar's full name: Pedro Miguel Salazar. This is important in linking him to his father.

Salazar, Maria Encarnacion, bapt 25 Mar 1833, 6 days old, daughter of Cristobal Salazar and Maria Varvara Baldes, residents del Rancho de San Francisco. Paternal grandparents: Domingo Salazar and Maria Gertrudis Gurule. Maternal grandparents: Juan Bautista Valdes and Anna Maria Archuleta. Sponsors: Pedro Salazar and Trinidad Valdes, residents of this place.

The baptism above provides the best possible clue to the parentage of both Pedro Salazar and his wife Maria de la Trinidad Valdes. If Cristobal Salazar is Pedro's brother, then Domingo Salazar and Maria Gertrudis Gurule are also Pedro's parents. If Maria Barbara Valdes is Trinidad Valdes's sister, then Juan Bautista Valdes and Anna Maria Archuleta are also Trinidad's parents.
