This topic came up recently in a parallel discussion board of the AHA. The SALALM (Seminar for the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials), the organization of Latin American Librarians in the US, has developed just such a site for digitized Latin American manuscript collections:
I am teaching an Afro-Latin American History course and assign primary sources for each class. My students do not read Spanish nor Portuguese, so I rely on translated sources.
Your site has been very helpful. I created a much shorter list for myself and for my students and your site is on it. I've pointed it out to them as a place to get sources for their research papers as well. Thank you!
I am trying to find out if there aduana records (I am specifically interested in the ports of Veracruz and Progreso) from the period 1910-1935. In the AGN? Elsewhere? I have been working in the state archives in Yucatán and periodically records from Aduana will surface but they are typically related to changes in personnel or general regulations. I am hoping to find really granular level records that document the importation of certain types of products. Any ideas?
