Recap of Presentation “A Look at Border Crossing Records”

A Look at Border Crossing Cards

Here is a quick recap of my presentation "Mexican Border Crossing Records". Hopefully this video recording will help you get a better knowledge of Mexican border crossing records.

I had fun making and recording the presentation. I even provided two examples of my own grandfather crossing the border. They contained information on him that I did not know. Also they had a thumb print and his signature which was neat to see. What discoveries will you make?
