Do you have Hispanic roots? Does your library or genealogical society work with people of Hispanic descent. Following is a list of classes that I think will be of particular interest at OGS 2018 to those researching Hispanic and Hispanic-American ancestors.
This two-part online study group will explain general concepts that pertain to Hispanic genealogy, discuss Hispanic immigration to and migration within the U.S., explain researching the homeland, and recommend key must-have reference tools for anyone doing Hispanic research.
Our ancestors’ lives did not consist of just the facts we typically look for in historical records. Social history helps us develop a holistic approach to research.
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!
I am launching a new FREE email newsletter focusing on Hispanic genealogy, history, and traditions. Hispanic Heritage Happenings will go out twice a month, delivered to your email inbox on the 1st and the 15th. Each issue will include a compilation and summary of relevant blog posts, tutorials, tips, reviews, collections and records, publications, webinars, conferences, seminars, workshops, etc., that I have identified and personally selected for you.
