More family records available for Mexicans



Currently we live in a world where family lineage is not continued as it was used to many years ago, now people get together with others from other cultures, countries, religions, etc. this has given as result very diverse families, but what happens when descendants want to learn their family origins? Because it’s very important to know where you came from, in order to know where you want to go.



For such reason, the world's leading family history brand, Ancestry, in collaboration with the Mexican Academy of Genealogy and Heraldry, with the help of FamilySearch International, launched a site for the Mexican and Mexican-American communities who would like to search and explore their family history.

The platform has over 220 million registers of Mexico including: birth, marriage, and death records dating back to the 1500s, and are now available on the website. On the site the user can make general searches with last name, date of birth, place of origin, etc. and explore through the results to find their family members.



After registering, the user can build its own family tree, where they can manually add family members and Ancestry will make suggestions on the person’s record, in case there is any. With this tool the user can visualize and arrange its family history.



This site will help many people from Mexican origin to find information on their family, "It’s fulfilling a huge need for a large and growing population group in the United States by helping them find their own unique stories and place in American and Mexican history." As stated by Todd Godfrey, Vice President of Global Content at Ancestry, quoted on an article by MarketWatch.
