Event Details

Colleen Robledo Greene, MLIS, is an academic librarian, college educator, and tech nerd who has been researching her family history since 1997. She is the Digital Literacy Librarian at California State University, and also teaches an online graduate-level genealogical research methods course for San Jose State University. Colleen is a nationally recognized speaker and educator specializing in methodology, Mexican & Hispanic research, libraries and archives, and technology. 

This overview lecture covers key U.S. records and strategies for identifying when and where your Mexican ancestors immigrated, and for identifying their hometown in Mexico. It also reviews the main record collections for tracing those family lines further back in Mexico. This class is ideal for anyone new to researching their Mexican lines, as well as those still relatively new to genealogy in general. Learn how even a non-Spanish speaker can be successful at this research.
