    I’m just getting started researching my family from Mexico so this webinar provided me with LOTS of information. I will definitely need to watch this at least two more times in addition to all the webinars on Mexico that you have in the library. The speaker provided a great handout – thank you so much!

    Excellent speaker and presentation! The strategies are transferable to all research efforts. My husband’s great grandmother was from Mexico and many ties to Laredo during the early settlement. I am excited to put all of the information in this webinar and the others to work on this family line.

    Interesting case study on Mexican immigration to the US and about the records available to research them.
