About this webinar

Historical records and social history paint a rich picture of the lives of our Mexican ancestors who were in the U.S. after the mid-19th century. A new border, new laws, a violent revolution, two world wars, and changing economic and political conditions significantly impacted your Mexican ancestors who came to or were born in the United States. Sharing a border, and sharing a long common history in certain regions of the U.S. has presented situations unique to those of Mexican descent compared to other immigrant and ethnic groups.

    This Webinar was much needed in regard to very useful information that most of us home researchers most likely have dismissed critical information on certain forms.

    Wow. Colleen knocked it out of the park. Felt as though her ancestors were talking through her in parts and the Mexican Diaspora were talking through her in other parts. Gained knowledge and the confidence to raise awareness of information learned. Thank you.

    I am new to researching Mexican ancestry for my niece’s husband’s maternal ancestry. I quickly recognized the inherent differences between mostly Americanized Scots, Irish, German research and his Turrieta / Lopez ancestry. I soaked up ever work and am so pleased to become aware of the many current and emerging resources to help. (I’m still way over my head, trust me)

    I do a lot of Mexican Family History. We did have people in the family who were Braceros, so that part of the presentation was great. I enjoyed hearing the more modern history and will watch this webinar again. Many thanks. From a viewer who lived in San Diego, California, & now has their home in Temple, Texas.

    A presentation of valuable information for all genealogists, especially clues for finding information: family stories, national archives, local sources, etc.
