Learn more about the history of Mexicans, Mexican Americans in Indiana and the Midwest through genealogical records. Nicole will show you the basics of Mexican genealogy in the United States and in Mexico. More importantly, how to interpret the lived experiences through historical context. Suitable for family researchers who are at a beginner or intermediate skill level. Presented by Nicole Martinez-LeGrand.

Nicole Martinez-LeGrand considers herself a community collaborator first and a museum professional second. Since 2016 she has been working on bolstering the Indiana Historical Society’s Latino, Hispanic and Asian collections beginning with oral history interviews and genealogical research into both ethnic communities, and adding manuscripts, books, photos, and other paper-based items to a growing and rich collection. Her research into both communities were presented in two IHS exhibits in 2018 and 2019. These explore themes of international history, labor history, and U.S. immigration law. In 2021 she was awarded the Outstanding Community Leader award by La Plaza, Inc., the City of Indianapolis’ oldest Hispanic and Latino serving institution. She is the co-author of IHS Press publications about Latino and Asian communities in Indiana.
