It’s time to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month which runs September 15-October 15, 2016.
During National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.
… The term Hispanic or Latino, refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.
Don’t forget that the Library of Congress (LOC) has a Hispanic Reading Room with a lot of helpful resources, and, there are many events planned (which you can attend in person or virtually) and so check out, The Library Celebrates Hispanic Heritage.
A Google search on Hispanic Genealogy or Hispanic Genealogical reveals several societies that may prove useful to your research – Hispanic Genealogical Research Center of New Mexico, Hispanic Genealogical Society, Hispanic Genealogical Society of New York, Genealogical Society of Hispanic America, Society of Hispanic Historical and Ancestral Research, and more.
There is also a FamilySearch FB page for Hispanic Genealogy Research and a print publication (since 2000), Somos PrimosTM -- a publication dedicated to past and present articles, events and information concerning Hispanic heritage issues.
So, let’s ¡Celebra!
