What is SHHAR?
The Society of Hispanic
Historical and Ancestral Research is a non-profit, all-volunteer
organization, founded in 1986, with the goal of helping
Hispanics/Latinos research their family history.
Although the group is based in
, networking participation via the
Internet is world-wide. SHHAR is maintained through donations.
Increasingly SHHAR members were invited
by many groups to participate with displays, lectures,
presentations, workshops, conferences and both help to organize
and set up events for/with other organizations.
The venues include many California
sites, such as San Juan Capistrano, Rancho Los Alamitos, Autry
Museum in Los Angeles, Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, Museum of
Latin American Arts in Long Beach, Santa Ana College, Golden
West College, Cypress College, Cal State Fullerton, Los Angeles
Public Library, Santa Ana City Library, Westminster and Fountain
Valley Public Libraries.
