John P. Schmal will conduct a seminar that will educate researchers on the availability of records in the Mexican states of Jalisco, Zacatecas and Aguascalientes and discuss the contents of such records. Research techniques for tracing families back several generations will be discussed. The discussion will include the valuable resources of the International Genealogical Index and the Record Search Pilot database, both of which can be searched from the comfort of your home.

The Mexican states of Jalisco, Zacatecas and Aguascalientes contain a wealth of information for family history researchers. Together, the three states take up 157,531 square kilometers (60,823 square miles) and are divided into 192 municipios.

The Family History Library has microfilmed church, civil, census, diocese and notarial records for approximately 260 separate locations in all three states. The result is that 26,135 rolls of microfilm from these states ranging from 1590 to the present day are available to American researchers through the resources of this library.

John Schmal is an historian, genealogist, and lecturer. Please see further information on Mexico at:
