    I so enjoyed this webinar! While my ancestors were not connected to Mexico during colonial times, the webinar gave me useful clues/methodogies for researching their movements and lives from the early 1900’s when they arrived in Mexico through the time just before they left in 1945.

    Excellent presentation. I have researched in Mexico for decades. It is my favorite kind of Family History because the records are so full of information. Using FamilySearch.org is the best place to see original records and the indexing results in English are helpful to those who are not fluent in Spanish. But you can learn and become an expert!
