Hispanic Heritage Project

In the past, Carlos Yturralde, spoke to GSHA-SC about the Hispanic Heritage Project, a non-profit group dedicated to preserving Latin American colonial era archives by imagining collections of historical documents. Their work makes it possible for researchers, genealogists, and historians to uncover previously unknown information about the Spanish colonial period in Latin America spanning from 1521 to 1821. Some of these records are already available online to the public, free of charge.

As an organization, GSHA-SC saw the need to help out Hispanic Heritage Project by donating again this year a small amount to help fund the preserving of Latin American colonial records, especially in Mexico, where our funds have been earmark. We ask our members to donate either directly or indirectly by going through GSHA-SC and earmarking their donation to be sent to Hispanic Heritage Project. GSHA-SC has donated in years 2016 and 2017 under the "Sponsor Banner" as well as donated in purchasing their genealogical books for sale. We hope in the future we can continue the good works that they wish to complete and we will continue to look at their research books that they offer for sale to complete our growing library.

For more information about the project, you can contact Carlos M. Yturralde, Executive Director, Hispanic Heritage Project at cmyturralde@gmail.com, or 760-848-6528. To keep this project going, your financial assistance is needed. To donate, go to their website at www.hh-p.org. Donations can be made by PayPal.
