Lecturer John Schmal will give a presentation on searching for your indigenous roots in Mexico. In addition to showing examples of Indian baptisms and marriages from various parts of the country, he will discuss the issue of tribal identity and the use of the generic term “indio” in Catholic Church records as early as the 1600s. Some of the challenges of tracing indigenous families beyond several generations will be discussed.

John P. Schmal is a historian, genealogist, and lecturer. John has B.A. Degrees in History (Loyola Marymount University) and Geography (St Cloud University). He is a lifetime honorary member of GSHA-SC and a board member of the Society of Hispanic Ancestral Research (SHHAR). He conducts research on Mexican and German families, as well as California and Colonial American research.

This program is part of the pre-festival programming for LA Libros Fest.
