About this webinar

We pour a lot of time, money, and soul into our family history research. So, we want to make sure we are tracing the right people and families in the right place at any given time, and that we glean all possible information and clues from the records. This presentation reviews social and cultural customs, and tools for learning about jurisdictions and key terminology. It is suitable for those still new to Mexican genealogy as well as more experienced researchers.

    I think Colleen did a wonderful job but for my purposes, I was more interested in the genealogy; i.e., naming conventions, determining relationships, availability of records, etc.

    Very good, a little drawn out in the way she spoke, but perhaps was talking slower due to people from all over the world.
