Tracing Ancestors through Revolutionary Mexico
Last Names of Nuevo Leon

In this post, I share with you a great presentation that will help you trace ancestors through revolutionary Mexico. It is full of great information, recommendations, and tips.

Once a month I feature a presentation that is available on Las Villas del Norte (the official premium genealogy group for our Mexican genealogy community). These presentations have a focus on researching Mexico or are about methodology that can be applied to researching our Mexican and Spanish Colonial Ancestry.

This month's presentation that I want to make you aware of is that of professional genealogist Lisa Medina and it is titled "Tracing Ancestors through Revolutionary Mexico".

The summary of the presentation is: "Listen to the story of Atala Apodaca Anaya and her achievements as a female revolutionary during the early 20th century, as well as those of other lesser known figures from the RevoluciĆ³n Mexicana. Learn about sources and methodologies for tracing your own ancestors in revolutionary Mexico."

This presentation provides a great wealth of knowledge on how to trace ancestors through revolutionary Mexico. 

The following topics are discussed:

  • People, places and timeline
  • Causes of the Revolution
  • Impact and legacy
  • Story of Atala Apodaca + Others
  • Repositories and Resources
