A welcome addition to the sparse literature for beginners in Hispanic genealogy. The authors bring a new resource into the public eye and provide the everyday American with a practical guide for locating Mexican ancestors.

The guide is illustrated with many actual documents from the family files of Ms. Morales during her search for her ancestral roots. The utilization of information from birth and death certificates, newspaper obituaries, naturalization records, alien registration forms, and funeral records are discussed. Church and civil records are also reviewed along with many helpful hints on starting and organizing data.

Buy From Amazon “Abraham Lincoln and Mexico – A History of Courage, Intrigue and Unlikely Friendships”(2016)
by Michael Hogan.

The author is a professor. He and the publisher, Mikel Miller, reside in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

The Mexican War (1846-48) occurred in many areas of what is today California, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and other states. The intent was to connect lands “from sea to shining sea” - the Atlantic and the Pacific. Abraham supported Mexico and believed the United States was wrong to start a war.

Buy From Amazon Galvez / Spain - Our Forgotten Ally in the American Revolutionary War: A Concise Summary of Spain's Assistance

by Judge Ed Butler

Also by Judge Ed Butler: George Washington's Secret Ally

During a private audience King Felipe asked judge Butler to write a book about Bernardo de Galvez and Spain's assistance to the U.S. during the American Revolutionary War. Gently poking judge Butler on the shoulder King Felipe, with a broad smile on his face said: "I want you to write a book about Spain's assistance to the United States during the American Revolutionary War; then I want you to write a screen play, and get Hollywood to make a movie. I would like Antonio Banderas to play the part of General Galvez." Judge Butler replied: "I can write the book, and I can write the screenplay, but it will be up to Hollywood to decide if they want to make a movie." The 360 page book with 214 footnotes, and 37 pages of Appendices, contains the names of hundreds of Spanish patriots. It documents the significant support rendered by Spain, and allows our Hispanic community to feel proud that their ancestors played a vital role in the formation of our nation.

So far, this book has won six awards:

  1. The Texas Connection To The American Revolution presented the "Best American History Book about the American Revolutionary War in 2014;
  2. Readers' Review gave it its "5 Star Award;"
  3. The Sons of the Republic of Texas presented its "Presidio La Bahia Award; "
  4. Texas Hill Country Chapter of Colonial Dames - "Best History Book in 2015."
  5. International Latino Book Award for Best History Book in 2016
  6. Author was awarded DAR Medal of Honor for writing books and making presentation about Spain's assistance.
