I got involved in genealogy research because I wanted my and my siblings' descendants to know something about their ancestors. I figured a month or two of research and I would be done. That was over 15 years ago.
The main sources for my Mexican ancestry research was my father, Joel, and his sister, Esther. They provided me with whatever basic informaion, copies of documents and photos that they could dig out. At the same time, I was looking into my mother's ancestry and I soon found myself in contact with a dozen cousins who were researching their Puerto Rican ancestry. The collaboration with these many cousins set the foundation for this website.
I continue to search for my Puerto Rican and Mexican ancestors in the microfilms of vital and church records made available by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints through a local Family History Center.
This section contains data that I have found regarding my ancestors in the Mexico microfilms. I am hopeful that my Mexican cousins will come across it and want to share what they might know of our genealogy.
