If you have Spanish roots, I want to introduce you to The Genealogy Corner blog, published by Daniel. He blogs regularly about his Spanish and English research. Daniel published a video tutorial on YouTube this week about Spanish death certificates, so I thought this a good time to steer my readers with Spanish roots to some of Daniel’s work.
These are the tools that I always have open and in front of me any time I work with Mexico civil registration and Catholic church parish records. And since I can only fudge my way through reading Spanish, these are the same tools I provide my Spanish-fluent father whenever he translates these records for me.
If you only use the Search feature to look for records on FamilySearch pertaining to your Mexican ancestors, you may be missing out on these very records. Examples from my own research show that the records are there, but just are not yet searchable.
