History, Heritage, and Family Fun

Traditional and new ways to build—and preserve—family memories.

And with an ever-growing amount of information online, don’t overlook the Internet. “If you research your last name online, you may come up with groups or long-lost relatives that are also looking for a link to their past,” Lozano says. “Type in your surname of interest, and expect a wonderful surprise, because your search will have begun.”

Websites that can get you started:

In English:

Association of Professional Genealogists

Society of Hispanic Historical and Ancestral Research

Somos Primos

Family Search

Cyndi’s List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet

En español:

Directorio de Genealogía Hispana
