Synopsis: A lo que es hoy América la hicieron hombres y mujeres, unos que vinieron de afuera, españoles mayormente y africanos, y otros que ya estaban dentro, los indios. Todos por igual contribuyeron a formar hogares y familias que generaron descendencias que a través de los siglos llegaron a constituir la nueva raza y civilización que hoy llamamos "Hispanismo". A diferencia de los otros europeos que fueron arribando posteriormente, las tres razas se mezclaron en relativa armonía y paz, españoles e indios desde un principio, y después gradualmente ambos con la africana. ¿Quién fue esta gente? ¿De dónde provenía y a qué se dedicaba? En esta extraordinaria obra se resaltan más de 10.000 de estas personas con amplia información biográfica y genealógica abarcando un período que sobrepasa los 300 años, desde principios del siglo XVI hasta avanzado el XIX. La obra llevó escribirla muchos años centrándose en concienzudos trabajos de investigación del Archivo General de Indias de Sevilla, España. Indudablemente que ha de resultar de sumo interés para todo aquel que se interese en descubrir sus raíces y ascendencia familiar. EL DR. CARLOS B. VEGA ha sido profesor de lengua, literatura, historia y cultura hispánicas por más de 40 años y es autor de importantes obras en estas materias. Esta es una de las más sobresalientes y doctas. ENGLISH: This unique book has delved into Latin American history to trace the origins of the people who spawned a whole new race and civilization known today as "Hispanics." There were mainly Spaniards who ventured across the Atlantic to settle the discovered lands. Socially they did not confine themselves to an Ivory Tower-like the majority of other Europeans who followed them most certainly did- but willingly and decisively, and in an unusual display of true democracy, intermingled with the vast indigenous population as well as blacks building families and a long lineage of descendants that constitute most of today's Latin America. The book is very thorough and detailed listing over 10,000 names with ample biographical and genealogical data covering over 300 years, from the very beginning through most of the 1800s. It is a fascinating, comprehensive, and most reliable source of information for all those interested in tracing back their family ancestry. It took many years to complete with extensive research mainly from the Archivo General de Indias in Seville, Spain. The author, Carlos B. Vega, Ph.D., has been a college professor of Spanish for almost four decades and published many books in language, history, and culture.
