Finding Your Hispanic Roots
by George R. Ryskamp
Finding Your Hispanic Roots is quite possibly the most useful manual on Hispanic ancestry ever published. Building on the previously published Tracing Your Hispanic Heritage, it provides detailed information on the records, sources, and reference works used in research in all major Hispanic countries.
Starting with an examination of basic research principles and techniques, illustrated with examples from actual Hispanic research experience, it goes on to discuss such important subjects as language and handwriting, Hispanic surnames, methods of tracing Hispanic immigrants in the U.S. records, and, most importantly, how to conduct Hispanic genealogical research in LDS Family History Centers, where the researcher will have access to the largest body of Hispanic records in the U.S.
