This June I start teaching a summer session course in genealogy for the graduate School of Information (iSchool) at San Jose State University. A course like this back then would have saved me years of frustration in my own research, and would have made me an even better librarian in terms of the type of research assistance and programming that I provided in public, special, and academic libraries.
News, tips, and reviews of relevance and interest to libraries, library professionals, and library patrons.

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.
