Hosting Hispanic conference

Members of the Laredo Texas District hosted a portion of the Texas State Hispanic Genealogical and Historical Society's 29th annual event in September. Members of the society learned about Personal Ancestral File and LDS Web sites, deciphering Spanish texts, finding genealogical Information in Mexico and Puerto Rico, and obtaining historical information about local areas. The next day an awards luncheon was held to celebrate Laredo's 250-year history. Church members were recognized and presented a historical poster to thank them for their participation in the conference.
