15 September 2015
National Hispanic Heritage Month runs 15 September through 15 October annually. Let’s Celebrate! #HispanicHeritageMonth & #HHM
There is a whole website dedicated to paying tribute to Hispanic Americans.
The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.
As family historians, a way that we pay tribute to Hispanic ancestry is by making sure that we document our Hispanic ancestors. Here are some Upfront with NGS posts to facilitate you doing just that -- Cinco de Mayo - Let's Research Hispanic Heritage! (2015), Hispanic Genealogy & You -- La genealogía Hispana y usted (2014), and Online Genealogy for Latinos -- Somos Primos and other resources! (2013).
Don’t forget that the Library of Congress has a Hispanic Reading Room with a lot of helpful resources.
