GenFriends: Mexican Genealogy with Nefi Arenas Salazar


Cheri and the panel Melissa Barker, Dan Earl welcome special guest Nefi Arenas Salazar who specializes in Mexican Genealogy.  Nefi joins us from Mexico to answer our questions about how to research in Mexico and the records available.  We discover as we have seen before, the methodology is the same,  it's the records and how and when they were created that makes the difference. We can learn from any type of research!

Watch as Nefi makes us all jealous when explaining the information recorded on many of the documents created in his country.

Do you have Mexican Ancestors?

We'd love to hear from you!

Heping you climb your family tree,

Celebration Sunday-Genealogy Happy Dance!

 You know the dance. You know you've done it. The one every researcher does after finding something new. The one where you want to jump up and down and shout to everyone around that you found the document, contacted a cousin who has the family Bible, made a DNA connection, or found a whole new branch to your tree. The one that is met with glazed stares and eye rolls.

                                                          Celebration Sunday is a place to share your discoveries. 
This is a weekly series to enable everyone to tell about their Genealogy Happy Dance moment. 
Share by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section or you may also put a link to a blog post telling about what had you dancing this week.

 My Happy Dance Moment for this week: 

Newspapers can fill in some of the details of the lives of our ancestors.
This article from 1927 has some details about a car wreck my great grandmother was involved in. My grandmother was in the car at the time along with her sisters. I can remember her telling me about it when I asked her to tell me some of her membories.
Discovering the article helped me to understand more about what happened.  A definite happy dance moment!

What is your Happy Dance Moment?
Please share and let's celebrate together!
