[Genealogia de Mexico] 29886 Somos Primos August 2011 141st Online Issue


Please cut and paste. Large issue, please wait for it to be fully loaded
before opening.

Dear primos and friends:

The August issues includes the index to the 30 Breaking Barriers series by
Mercy Bautista-Olvera. Each month featured 5 living Latinos who have
achieved positions of prominence and responsibility in government,
business, and/or education. There are  150 concise mini-bios, with a photo.
The series was conceived to bring awareness to the facts of the many
successful Hispanics in the United States. The index provides a
marvelous, very current resource for use in the celebration of Hispanic
Heritage Month, Sept 15-Oct 15.   I hope teachers and youth leaders will
avail themselves of the Breaking Barriers series in creative ways.

With deepest appreciation to all who continue to send fascinating,
informative, thought-provoking information.  Many readers have commented on
the social diversity of items, historical, heritage, and current.  The
assortment is reflective of our community's varied heritage and history.
That is who we are, a medley!!

God bless America, Mimi
