As Genealogical Society Of Hispanic America (GSHA) members, we share the commonality of interest in researching our Hispano genealogy, with roots predominantly in New Mexico, Colorado, California and the countries of Mexico and Spain. The vast majority of our members are proud descendants of the first Spanish Europeans to settle in what is now New Mexico, United States of America, in 1598 or earlier.
GSHA Chapters boast extensive member libraries with collections of Hispanic genealogical records, maps, Hispanic family histories & documents; history books and genealogical extraction data. Each of our chapters, the Fray Angelico Chavez Chapter, GSHA - Pueblo and the Southern California Chapter - GSHA, assist and provide basic instruction for their new members along with in-depth research opportunities for experienced members.
GSHA maintains strong professional affiliations with other historical and genealogical research associations throughout the country.
GSHA publishes an extensive quarterly journal, Nuestras Raices and a quarterly newsletter, Noticias de Nuestras Raices, available to members.
GSHA annually hosts a genealogical conference and business meeting, where we gather together as genealogists and historians to share the newest information,and, as friends and colleagues, to renew friendships and affiliations as "primos".
