Patriots Series by Granville W. and N.C. Hough

Series of studies developed as a cooperative effort to identify soldiers who served Spain after Spain joined the War against England.  Dr. Hough, retired military and a member of the Sons of the American Revolution believes descendants of Spanish soldiers who served during that time period should qualify for membership in the Sons of the American Revolution.  Tables of Contents below.

Towards that goal, the Houghs have produced an outstanding series which include the following:  
Spain's Patriots of California 
       Part 1
       Part 2
Spain's Patriots of Arizona
Spain's Patriots of New Mexico
Spain's Patriots of Texas
Spain's Patriots of Louisiana
Spanish, French, Dutch, and American Patriots of the West Indies 
Spain's Patriots of Northwestern New Spain

The following information from each of the Spain's Patriots' tables of contents will help the researcher in selecting the book of most possible interest and family value.

John P. Schmal and Donna S. Morales.

A welcome addition to the sparse literature for beginners in Hispanic genealogy. The authors bring a new resource into the public eye and provide the everyday American with a practical guide for locating Mexican ancestors.

The guide is illustrated with many actual documents from the family files of Ms. Morales during her search for her ancestral roots. The utilization of information from birth and death certificates, newspaper obituaries, naturalization records, alien registration forms, and funeral records are discussed. Church and civil records are also reviewed along with many helpful hints on starting and organizing data.

This publication can be purchased through Borderland Books. Our Links page shows you how to navigate to their site.
