Do you research families and communities of Mexican descent who immigrated to the United States in the 20th century? Are you still trying to identify their hometown in Mexico? In your genealogy research, do you encounter any of these relatives missing from U.S. historical records in the 1930s and 1940s?
I presented a webinar for Legacy Family Tree Webinars yesterday that debuted a new case study featuring my grandfather’s Uncle Juvenal Nieto Compeán. When I first started trying to research my Mexican family history – back in 1998 as a new genealogist – I discovered Tío Juvenal in the 1920 census. His less common name helped me work through some early beginner genealogy challenges, yet his story continues to fascinate me.

Tío Juvenal: Putting the Records, Context & Strategies All Together
This 20th century Mexican and Mexican-American case study showcases and weaves together different types of records available online, as well as those that need to be viewed at or requested from physical archives, and family interviews. It demonstrates the essential role that understanding historical context and customs plays in analyzing sources and building out a more comprehensive family history.
