TABLE OF CONTENTS TO DECEMBER 2013
Dear Family, Friends and Somos Primos readers:
This issue completes 14 years of publishing monthly issues of Somos Primos. With the primary mission of supporting family history research, I have attempted to include the diverse range of political sentiments among Latinos communities in the United States, to unite us in our heritage. I have tried to support those involved in education and cultural activities, and above all to encourage and demonstrate the Spanish historic presence, and contributions, in the founding and development of the United States.

Now going into Somos Primos 15th year, much of the categories of information that I have been including in Somos Primos is being offered on literally thousands of websites. However, what is still not in great abundance are our personal stories. Thankfully there are increasing numbers of oral histories projects, mostly associated with a university or public library, plus personal blogs, and social networking sites that are resulting in a new type of personal journal. What I would like Somos Primos to be, is a free service for Hispanics/Latinos to share personal and family history articles. You may feel that y our memories do not matter, that it is too complicated to set up a blog or website to share your few stories, but your memories do matter. Your memories have shaped your thoughts and affect how you interact in a continually changing world. Together we are all creating
history. Somos Primos will be a free site for you to share yours.
Scattered in the December you will read many memories of Christmas. I am very, very thankful to those that kindly responded to my request to
share a special Christmas memory. and those that continue to send
items of interest. Their contributions are gifts to all of us. Let me invite each of you to consider writing an article for the January issue of Somos Primos on memories of based on a new beginnings for you, changes, such as graduating, moving to a new location, getting married, new baby, new school, new job, new friend, having to start anew because of an accident, new church, new pet, death in the family, new recreation, new car. We all have forks in the road, some were just
happenstance, some were intentional decisions. It would be a new kind
of gift for your family. Write it as a Christmas gift for your family, and share it with Somos Primos readers. What happened, and why it mattered to you? Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Mimi
