Dear primos, family, and friends. . .  

Hope all are well in this season of spontanous weather changes . . .



To facilitate searching through previous issues of Somos Primos, my
grandson Luke have created a single file of all the Tables of
Contents for the 2002-2005 issues. 



All the Tables of Contents are connected, which means you can do a category
search based on the division in Somos Primos, such as BLACK or SPAIN,
or a keyword search  on the titles.  An overview of the
contents of Issues 2000 and 2001 is facilitated by the use of a subject
index created by John P. Schmal.



Once you have identified the issues of interest, then go the homepage
and click to any issue of interest. Hope this helps.

DC meeting, summer 2007

Well, I will go out on a limb here, and offer a pot of frijoles and
arroz to all who make the trip to DC in summer 2007. I live in Fairfax
County, VA, just across the river from Washington, DC., and I would be
honored to break tortillas with you in my home.

NARA Border Crossing Records

Last September, at the Hispanic Genealogy Conference held @NARA,
Washington, DC, one of the presentations had to do with "Mexican
Border Crossing (Immigration) Records. The presentation was given by
Claire Prechtel-Kluskens, and most of the details of her presentation
can be found at the following NARA site:
http://www.archives.gov/genealogy/immigration/border-mexico.html
It is very detailed, and should be read with care.

SoCal Meeting

I just want to express my view and comment about our recent meeting that we had in Southern California.

First of all, I offer my thanks and appreciation to Olivia Jaurequi and her husband for being such wonderful hosts. I can imagine all the hard work and preparation that it took to take care of the group. The food was delicious and plentiful. My only regret is that I started with the Mole, beans, rice, salad,and the tasty Carne Asada and by that time, I had no room for the Menudo and pan dulce! Maybe next time I'll start with the Menudo.

Cristobal Magallanes Jara

Does anybody in the group have a copy of Esteban Valdes Salazar's pamphlet on Saint Cristobal Magallanes Jara's genealogy? I know that somebody in the group shared a scan of the cover with me early on... but I was wondering if someone had the content as well... particularly the Magallanes side. I have the Jara side from Esteban Valdes' Jaras de Totatiche book going pretty far back... That is available in my online database if anyone is interested:

Lent and Capirotada Time

Well it is that time again............time to do your shopping and get ready for Capirotada. Tomorrow is fat Tuesday as they say in New Orleans but for "nosotros los Mexicanos" it is time to prepare for Ash Wednesday. Not only do we prepare capirotada but we begin to prepare all the other lenten meals which means meatless pero muy sabroso.   Today we purchased el pan bolillo at the panaderia La Sonorense. Tomorrow we slice the bread lengthwise and toast it in the oven. Hubby diced all the dried fruit today to use for the capirotada. He shelled the peanuts and will toast them tomorrow. He went to Supermercado Mexico today and purchased Canela, piloncillo, tomatillos, queso Oaxaca and we will be ready to roll tomorrow.   For the rest of the meal we bought nopales, dried favas which in spanish are habas and the dried, powdered shrimp. We will make tortas de camaron con nopales en mole rojo. We will shell
