Update on Hispanic Heritage Project

The Hispanic Heritage Project and the El Colegio de Michoacán are pleased to announce that they have begun cataloging the following collection: “Procesos del Santo Oficio de México, 1522-1820, Sección genealogía de los procesados.”

To carry out the project, a team of catalogers is being organized by El Colegio de Michoacán to develop a catalog of the collection. It is supervised by Doctora Clementina Campos, director of the Office of Diffusion Cultural and coordinated by Dr. Isabel Juárez, who will be responsible for developing the project. This collection, housed at the Archivo General de la Nación has been previously digitized by FamilySearch and is located on its website, FamilySearch.org. The catalog will greatly facilitate searching and accessing the documents which will be available on the panes.info website.

The final product will be entitled Genealogía de los Procesados” It will contain the names of the accused and their genealogies that were notated during the inquisition process.
