¡Ayúdeme! Hispanic Research Classes Online

January 27, 2014  - by 

Habla español or are you doing research in a Spanish speaking country? If so, the FamilySearch Learning Center has some classes that may be of interest to you. From the Pampas of Argentina to the frontera between the United States and Mexico, the variety of classes might surprise you. There are 47 classes either presented in Spanish or designed to help you read and master Spanish paleography.

To learn about the basic record types used in Hispanic research you might want to view our classes on Civil Registration or Parish Records (both taught in Spanish). To help you learn to read and interpret documents in Spanish there’s a Spanish Script Tutorial. Below is just a small sampling of what you can find.

Secuencia correcta al buscar en registros parroquiales (The correct sequence for searching parish records). Taught in Spanish.

Fuentes para escribir la biografía de un antepasado (Sources for writing the biography of an ancestor). Taught in Spanish.

U.S. Hispanic Immigrants: Finding their Place of Origin. Taught in English

Beginning German Research Series Taught in Spanish.

La investigacion genealogica en Guatemala: Elementos basicos (Genealogy research in Guatemala: Basic elements) Taught in Spanish

Brazil Beginning Research Series Taught in English and Portuguese.

There are many more classes available. To view the complete list, I invite you to visit the FamilySearch Learning Center.

It may also interest you to know that recently several more classes in Spanish and English related to Hispanic research have been filmed and should be uploaded to the Learning Center soon. Stay tuned!
