FIU Special Collections announces the online Enrique Hurtado de Mendoza Collection of Cuban Genealogy available at the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC).
A culmination of three years of research and processing, thousands of unpublished family genealogies and manuscripts are now available online for genealogical research. The digital collection provides a Directory by Family Name and is also searchable by subject.
The Enrique Hurtado de Mendoza Collection was acquired by FIU Libraries Special Collections in 2012 and includes rare 17th and 18th century books, handwritten and typed letters, long out-of-print publications and periodicals, photos and other primary documents relating to Cuba and Cuban genealogy, collected over four decades by Felix Enrique Hurtado de Mendoza. Access to the collection is also available in the Green Library at Florida International University Special Collection and University Archives.
FIU Special Collections and University Archives would like to thank volunteers, Lourdes del Pino and Mariella Fernandez from the Cuban Genealogy Club who helped organize and digitize the Enrique Hurtado de Mendoza Collection.
