150 Years of Mexican and Mexican-American Newspapers Now Searchable

OMG!

I saw this article on Remezcla and I decided to check it out.

The database covers the Gadsen Purchase, the Mexican Revolution, Mexican repatriation, the Bracero program, and the Chicano Civil Rights Movement.

One of the first things that I had was put in my surname to see what turned up. I found birth announcements in the newspaper and various other mentions of my name that may or may not have a relationship to me. It’s amazing! Thank you, University of Arizona!

Check out the database to see what you can find.
