General Meeting in the Library

Saturday, September 2, 2023

Time: 10:00 a.m.

Speaker: Jerry Shepard

Subject: Mexican Research

Jerry, is an expert in Mexican Research. He has been able to trace his wife’s family back to the original Spanish conquerors. Jerry will tell us about his personal experiences in doing in-person research in Mexico and his trip to his wife’s ancestral village in Spain. I am looking forward in hearing how to research Spanish records. After the Civil War, some Confederates moved south and settled in Mexico. Researchers have found excellent church and census records in Family Search.
