Mexican Genealogy


The Hernandez family of my cousin's wife was my first experience at doing genealogy for a family from Mexico. Little did I realize, as I started, how hard it would be to gather any type of information. I had done family research for families outside of the United States, but usually was able to get some data. But, for the country of Mexico it was like hitting brick walls each time I tried to find a family member.

It was at this time I decided to find some Mexican genealogy links that might help me discover more on my Hernandez research. I also wanted to learn more about the country of Mexico.

Mexico is bordered by the United States to the north and Belize and Guatemala to the southeast. Mexico is about one-fifth the size of the United States. Baja California in the west is an 800-mile peninsula and forms the Gulf of California. In the east are the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay of Campeche, which is formed by Mexico's other peninsula, the Yucatán. The center of Mexico is a great, high plateau, open to the north, with mountain chains on the east and west and with ocean-front lowlands lying outside them.(Infoplease.com)

The religion is 89% Roman Catholic and 6% Protestant and 5% other. Spanish is the main language spoken. The monetary unit is the mexican peso.

Here are the links that I hope will help you as you look for your Mexican families.
