A few weeks ago I came across an excellent resource to help you in your Mexican Genealogy Research and after you read it you will have the same opinion about it. It is a small 22 page eBook available at familysearch.org. It is titled “Major Genealogical Record Sources In Mexico”. This book was written by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Genealogical Department back in 1970 but the material covered is as relevant today as it was back then.
The four major goals of this book is to:
- Identify types of records that exist that will aid in the identification of ancestors.
- Identify periods of time that the existing records cover.
- Identify what genealogical information appears in the existing records.
- Identify the availability of existing records for searching.
Cover of Book:
This book has already helped me to identify several books were possible ancestors may be listed. I know that it will also help you out. Even if you do not have the time to check it out today or read it I recommend that you download it.
