October was a very busy month for me at my day job, and with preparing for a conference and research trip to Texas, so I neglected to share this earlier.
I had the pleasure recently of joining my colleaguem, genealogy educator Amy Johnson Crow, on her new podcast, Generations Cafe, to share some of my key tips for researching Mexican ancestry.
Episode: Generations Cafe Podcast, Episode 5
Length: 31 minutes
Doing Mexican genealogy has its own set of challenges (even beyond the language barrier). Colleen Greene, a noted Mexican genealogy expert, shares her tips for finding your ancestor’s hometown and major record groups you’ll want to use. She also explains the structure of Hispanic surnames.1
Access: Listen to the podcast from Amy’s website, or using the podcast app on your smartphone.
