Welcome to Discover Genealogy!

As with other ethnic genealogies, Hispanic genealogy involves standard research principles with a twist.  Often children were given two surnames one from each parent, and women often retained their maiden name once married.  Kimberly Powell at About.com has a great article on Researching Your Hispanic Heritage.   Discover Genealogy is looking for contributors with experience in Hispanic genealogy, please email us at info@discovergenealogy.com if you are interested in contributing.
