RESEARCHING BRITISH ANCESTORS IN 19th CENTURY MEXICO
presented by Evan Christensen
There were several known migrations of Britons to Mexico, but perhaps the most well-known are those Cornish miners that moved to the Mexican state of Hidalgo, who institutionalized football (soccer) in Mexico. Researching foreigners in Mexican records can present special challenges at times, especially if they were not Catholic, but there are a few tricks we have up our sleeves as genealogists which is what I’d like to cover in this talk. I’ll share a brief history as it pertains to British immigration to Mexico, review relevant record sets, and share helpful methodology for tracing this group of people (Britons) in Mexico.
