Invisible Immigrants will not be forgotten from James Fernandez

PLEASE CLICK ON LINK OR COPY INTO YOUR BROWSER.  IT IS A WONDERFUL VIDEO ABOUT SPANISH IMMIGRATION...

This is in Spanish and one day I hope to translate the video in my head instead of Google Translate and books.  My Spanish classes help a lot but when I see a wonderful video such as this, I wish I could work at a faster speed!

Spanish Pearls is now ~ Spanish Pearls Genealogy ~


As Fall brings gold and red leaves, changes are definitely in the air here too.
In preparation for my new look, Spanish Pearls is changing to Spanish Pearls Genealogy.
It will be different but the same...not a cliche, really.

Spanish Pearls began several years ago for a way for me to post about my personal genealogical journey during the research phase while I wrote THE GIRL IMMIGRANT, the story of Spanish immigration during the early 1900s through my grandmother's eyes and memories.  What started as a project of love, as I followed my grandmother and her family, morphed into a passionate obsession with Spanish genealogy.  That being said, my new venture will be doing this crazy, wonderful searching for others so they can feel the bliss of growing their own family trees by connecting their families to the past.

My goal is to move all the personal blog posts to Touching Spanish Soil where my personal genealogy journey will continue, while my new Spanish Pearls Genealogy blog will include tips and steps to genealogy help and suggestions for others.

New website will be live soon! www.spanishpearlsgenealogy.com
