This introductory overview lecture explains Hispanic genealogy concepts, immigration to and migration within the U.S., researching your ancestors lives in the U.S. and in the homeland, and key reference tools for better understanding the records.
The TxSGS conference program has a great lineup presenting on sessions that are specific to Hispanic research. I encourage anyone with Hispanic ancestry, or just an interest in Hispanic research to attend.
Join me this coming Sunday, September 15th for a jam-packed lecture that explains the two “bread and butter” record types for Mexican and Hispanic genealogy – Catholic parish registers and government civil registrations.
The January launch of my new Hispanic SIG for VGA was moved from January to February. You still have time to register and join us!
Like many cultures, Hispanic countries (we’re including Spain) have traditional naming conventions. Understanding these well will make you much more successful when researching and documenting your ancestors.
Our goal is that this SIG will help you advance your Hispanic research from the comfort and convenience of your home or wherever you have an internet connection. Join us on the 3rd Tuesday of each month (6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Pacific).
