Letter to the Editor: I want to thank you for the great opportunity that "Somos Primos" provides for the preservation and advancement of Hispanic culture.
The internet has provided humanity with a quantum leap in information and research. Therefore it is imperative that Hispanic culture in all its diversity be documented in cyberspace so that future generations may not only appreciate but understand their legacy.
It just takes one written sentence to bring about a great human experience.
I grew up knowing about my "Nuevo Santander" ancestors but not experiencing them. A friend gave me a volume of "Spain under the Roman Empire" by E. I read that there was a city named "Reinosa" in Spain that was actually founded by Julius Caesar.
I wondered if it was somehow related to Reynosa, Mexico a city just across the border from where I grew up. That search led to a discovery of other cities named after Spanish cities in the former colony of "Nuevo Santander" and a renewed interest in my genealogical roots.
That led to the restoration of lost family relationships and ancestors. Thank you for the opportunities you have provided for me to document the priceless heritage I received from my ancestors. I hope others will catch the vision of "Somos Primos".Author Kelly Condit-Shrestha is a transnational U.S.
