About this webinar

Mutualistas, or mutual aid societies, sprang up in Mexican American communities in the early 20th century to protect and assist members facing economic hardships or discrimination. Health insurance, burial assistance, legal advocacy, cultural activities, and member participation are detailed in an extraordinary array of records.

    Interesting program for doing ones Mexican Heritages.. Unfortunately I don’t have any to search for at the moment. However, I did notice that there was one unrelated ancestor that might have been in Mexico and further search will come back at a later time period to validate if this is true..

    The topic is one not found in conferences so it is of great value to those needing another avenue to research.
