Title: A Psycho-Social Explanation of Familial Road Blocks in Mexican-American Genealogy
Summary: Every culture honors their ancestry differently. For Mexican Americans, that honor includes privacy and secrecy which at times makes genealogical study difficult. Family secrets aren't shared, not out of shame, but out of respect. We will discuss some of the cultural, social and psychological issues that commonly impede genealogical research.
