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.
I am usually pleased to find just one or two sessions focusing on Hispanic genealogy and history at conferences, but this conference features FIVE breakout sessions that are of high value to those researching or teaching Hispanic history.
Join me next month in Austin, Texas for the 2015 Family History Conference ,where I am teaching sessions on “Helping Patrons Find & Use Southwest Archival Collections” and “An Introduction to Researching Your Mexican Ancestors”.
