If you have Hispanic ancestors, I highly encourage you to attend the upcoming TxSGS 2016 Family history Conference. In addition to classes focusing on general methodology, record types, and repositories, there are five sessions in particular that focus on Hispanic genealogy.
Join me in Dallas, Texas the weekend of October 28-30, 2016, where I am teaching two classes on Mexican genealogy, and a class on using the Digital Public Library of American and HathiTrust.
The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) and the National Park Service (NPS) are collaborating on a project to help preserve and share the history of those who served in the U.S. Mexico War. I just emailed the project coordinator to find out how I can help! WILL YOU?
