FELIZ NAVIDAD . . . .

Dear Primos and Friends,

Hoping this Christmas season is joyful and stress free for all of you.

I received an interesting email suggesting two types of Christmas gifts appropriate to this difficult financial situation, and in the Christian spirit:

(1) Support local merchants, give gift certificates for services such as pedicure/nails, haircut/styling, restaurants, massage, etc. anything which would keep locals working.
(2) Cut down family expenses by giving something personal, such as an act of service or hand-made gifts.

Big thanks for all of you who have taken the time to send the positive of our community, outstanding leaders, events, family histories, your memories and thoughts. Your submissions are always a pleasure to share. You'll find many books recommended by readers in this issue. Don't John Schmal's data analysis from the 2010 Mexico census of Indigenous Mexico.

For Mexican researchers, the most exciting news: George Ryskamp, BYU staff and world-wide expert of Spanish language records, said that ALL OF THE MEXICAN CATHOLIC PARISH RECORDS are now online.  They are digitized so a copy of the actual document can be made. Wow!! www.FamilySearch.com

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas celebration
Your prima  and friend . .  Mimi
