Hispanic Heritage Month Begins

National Hispanic Heritage Month begins today, 15 September 2014, and runs through 15 October 2014. A joint website from the Library of Congress, National Archives, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is available at http://hispanicheritagemonth.gov/, highlighting activities and collections "celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America." I have previously marked this commemorative period with posts in 2012 and 2013.

Here's a picture of my Granny's Campuzano siblings in Tucson, Arizona from the early to mid-1930s.

I'll also take this occasion to link to my my post from 31 May 2014 on Immigrant Heritage Month. I'm proud of my Hispanic heritage, and will celebrate my Mexican, Chilean, Spanish and Basque ancestors in a number of posts during this month. Hopefully I'll have some new finds to report from Citizenship and Immigration Services too.
