Project focuses on Cuban genealogy

“One of the consequences of any emigration is the loss to new generations of their families' roots, history and heritage.” An article in, UM Project helps Cuban-Americans trace ancestry to preserve heritage, provides information on project to preserve the history of the Cuban-American community and the various ethnic groups that called Cuba home. Because civil records are much more difficult to obtain in Cuba than in other countries, the goal is to get a family's research there done as soon as possible, according project leader, Jorge Piñón.
