March 8th Presentation

This past March the 8th I did a presentation for Las Villas del Norte in Mission Texas. We had over 24 attendees and I had allot of fun meeting and talking with most of them. If you are not aware last month I started a website called Las Villas del Norte and once a month on the second Sunday we will be meeting at the Speer Memorial library in Mission Texas. Before I tell you more about Las Villas del Norte let me tell you about my presentation.

I started the presentation with an overview of Las Villas del Norte and it’s benefits. Then after I did that I did the main presentation where I explained on how I used the Church Padrones (Censuses) to break two of my brick walls. I also provided ideas as to where to locate these census records. Overall I have gotten great feed back from members of Las Villas del Norte in regards to my presentation. By the way did I mention that you can see my presentation if you become a member of Las Villas del Norte? Yes all presentations will be recorded for our members.
