Anglo-Chicana/Mexicana Marriages Bibliography

Query from Dorothy Reina X-posted from H-Ethnic, H-West 13 Feb 1997 & SpanBord

I am doing research on the topic of Anglo-Chicana/Mexicana marriages in the southwest U.S. between 1850-1900 and would appreciate any suggestions of books and/or articles that might be worth investigating. Your help in this matter is most appreciated.
