The Hispanic Colorado Resource Guide "identifies resources providing perspectives on the diverse experiences of Hispanics in Colorado -- who they are, where they came from, how they lived, and what they contributed."
This guide identifies various types of publications useful to researchers and genealogists, as well as specific county and regional information and places to go - churches, museums, and historic sites - to find out more. The guide also includes an appendix on Hispanic Colorado legislators and another appendix on researching photograph collections.
