Like many cultures, Hispanic countries (we’re including Spain) have traditional naming conventions. Understanding these well will make you much more successful when researching and documenting your ancestors.
Our goal is that this SIG will help you advance your Hispanic research from the comfort and convenience of your home or wherever you have an internet connection. Join us on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Pacific).
Do you have Hispanic ancestors, or work with Hispanic patrons or clients? Join me November 2nd – 4th at the TxSGS Family History Conference in San Antonio, Texas! Following is a list of classes that I think will be of particular interest at TxSGS 2018 to those researching Hispanic ancestors.
In six weeks, I return to teach at one of my favorite genealogy conferences. The Texas State Genealogical Society (TxSGS) is participating in the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the founding of San Antonio, Texas by holding its annual family history conference there. My sessions include a mix of Hispanic research and technology tools.
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.
