ANCESTRAL RESEARCH COMES TO SANTA FE
Santa Fe – Where Trails and Cultures Meet
The Genealogical Society of Hispanic America (GSHA) has selected Santa Fe for its 2012 conference to be held June 15th-17th at The Lodge at Santa Fe.
“To help celebrate New Mexico centennial, our national board chose Santa Fe” states Douglas Daniels, President of GSHA. “New Mexican genealogy is one of the most engaging studies in the country for genealogists. Students and scholars of humanities including anthropology and language study it because of its unique cultural and historical perspective” states Daniels.
In addition to the latest in methodologies in genealogical research and publications available at the conference, selected presenters will discuss historical events with a cultural perspective, a way in which the narrative of our State continues to be defined. Topics will also include the Camino Real, Jewish and French presence since the 1500s and a presentation titled, Women, Wills and their Goods, all within the framework of genealogy and family history.
The Keynote speaker will be Ana Pacheco, a native of Santa Fe who was the publisher of La Herencia magazine. Like many, Pacheco traces her New Mexico ancestral roots to the 17th century.
Conference package or per session attendance is available. Anyone can attend and pay for individual sessions on site the day of the conference. For details and costs and to view the list of speakers, visit www.gsha.net.
The Genealogical Society of Hispanic America is a nonprofit 501c3 organization with two chapters located in Pueblo Colorado and Burbank California. GSHA members, share the commonality of interest in researching our Hispano genealogy, with roots predominantly in New Mexico, Colorado, California and the countries of Mexico and Spain. The vast majority of our members are proud descendants of the first Spanish Europeans to settle in what is now New Mexico, United States of America, in 1598 or earlier.
