This course discusses the history of Texas, the types of records that exist, the type of genealogical information you can get from those records, and where you might find those records in both online and physical repositories.
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.
Did your ancestors fight on the Mexican side of the Battle of San Jacinto during the Texas Revolution? Learn about a key collection to help you document their service.
These records are critical for those of us with ancestors and collateral relatives who immigrated from Mexico during the early-to-mid 20th century, and particularly during the violent Mexican Revolution.
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.
