Cuban Genealogy

Jim Acosta of CNN is doing a series of reports from Cuba. His blog details some of his impressions, but of most interest to us family tree climbers will be today’s report on tracing his father’s family.

The reporter took a taxi to his father’s village, and obtained church records of baptism. He talked to an uncle, and looked at places familiar to him only through is father’s stories.  At the end of the piece, he expressed his feelings on finally seeing for himself what he had only heard about.

Good stuff.

  1. There’s nothing quite like making a personal visit to a place where an ancestor lived. It gives you such a deep feeling of connection to your past and your roots. It’s something everyone should do at least once. I’ve always found such trips to be very meaningful experiences.
