This past Wednesday, I joined my geneabud Nicka Smith as a guest panelist on her twice monthly Black ProGen LIVE genealogy broadcast show. The Spanish Empire played a major role in the transatlantic slave trade, and people of African descent played a major role in colonizing the New World.
Have you inherited an obituary or another type of biographical sketch of a Mexican ancestor or relative? Would you like to learn how to dig deeper into that record to discover more about that individual and his/her family? Join me at the 28th Annual Genealogical Society of Hispanic America Conference!
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.
FamilySearch is providing two excellent free webinars this month for working with Spanish language civil and church registrations, as well as a free webinar to get you started volunteering as an indexer for Spanish language records.
