Awesome Comment

This podcast episode ROCKS! Moises and Welester Alvarado (President of the Genealogical Society of Nuevo Leon) present important information (history, culture, and stories) in a lively, humorous, engaging, and unpretentious manner. Moises and Welester have years of research experience and clearly know the material. Thanks for sharing, supporting our efforts, and helping us ‘connect the dots’. – Rene Renteria  – That was for session 4
