Are you curious about your local history and genealogy? Join us for a 6 hour in-depth learning experience and hear speakers such as Trinidad Gonzales, Beatrice de León, Pino Shah, Moises Garza and others! Have questions about your family tree or how to start growing your tree? Join us in the afternoon for hands-on learning on the most popular websites available for researchers.

MPL’s Genealogy & Local History Symposium will feature a variety of workshops including our main speaker, Professor Trinidad Gonzales of South Texas College speaking on “Refusing to Forget: Memory, Truth and Reconciliation” and a play titled “Readings from the Canales Commission of 1919” performed by students from Donna High School and led by Juan Carmona, Donna High School teacher.

I will be presenting the Architecture of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Photography Project.
