Conference Outcome

The Ibero-American Genealogy Conference in in Salt Lake City, Utah was a success. There was a large number of genealogy students and enthusiast from all over Latin America and Spain.  In addition there was a dedicated group of presenters and professional genealogists that worked hard to cover all the topics in the agenda. 
I instructed on the topic “Notarial Records in Spain”, but the highlight for me was meeting in person Mr. George Ryskamp, the patriarch of the Hispanic genealogy in the United States. 

I also took the opportunity to visit the Genealogical Society of Utah and did some research at the Family History Library, the largest genealogical library in the world.

Overall a very productive trip that helped us to collaborate with development of the Hispanic genealogical research.
