The Cuban Genealogy Club of Miami, Florida

Welcome to the CGC / Bienvenidos al CGC

The Cuban Genealogy Club of Miami, Florida, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that was founded in February of 2001.  The club is the result of a shared desire for family historians, with a particular interest in Cuba, to convene regularly in order to further their knowledge and share information.  We strive for the preservation of our shared memories and experiences.  The Cuban Genealogy Club of Miami Florida, Inc. seeks to foster an interest in the preservation of records and testimonies that document Cuban family history. 

Without exception, we have taken many years of research and financial resources to gather all the information needed to put together a family tree. Those who have ancestors in Cuba do not have the luck of an online database that connects us to a family tree of all our ancestors to 1400. All of the content on our databases are a result of thousands of papers we've requested and transcribed because of its genealogical value, or was donated by our members from their personal research. Absolutely everything is the result of countless hours of volunteer work. 

We are not in the business of doing genealogical research for others. We invite you to browse our site and see what we offer on our free databases, as well as the links to our journal and other sites of interest. 

Our regular meetings are designed with the purpose of exchanging findings, questions, ideas and new sources of information. Please feel free to peruse our site and go to our Calendar page for information about our meetings and events. We invite you to attend one of them! Guests are always welcomed!!

El Club de Genealogía Cubana de Miami, Florida, Inc. es una organización sin fines de lucro que fue fundada en Febrero de 2001. El club es el resultado de un deseo compartido por aquellos interesados en la genealogía, principalmente de Cuba. Periódicamente se convocan reuniones a fin de ampliar conocimientos y compartir información. Nuestra misión es fomentar la conservación de la mayor cantidad posible de documentos y testimonios sobre la historia  de Cuba.

Sin excepción, a todos nos ha tomado muchos años de investigación y altos recursos financieros recopilar toda la información necesaria para armar un árbol genealógico.  Quienes tenemos antepasados en Cuba no tenemos la suerte de una base de datos con alegres hojitas que nos conectan con un árbol genealógico de  todos nuestros antepasados hasta los 1400.  

Todo el contenido de la base de datos de nuestra página de web son miles de documentos que hemos encargado y transcrito por su valor genealógico y muchos otros donados por nuestros miembros producto de sus investigaciones personales.  Absolutamente todo lo que se encuentra en la página es el resultado de innumerables horas de trabajo voluntario.

No efectuamos investigaciónes genealógicas.  Le invitamos a que navegue por nuestra página y vea lo que ofrecemos en la base de datos, los enlaces y las revistas que publicamos durante años en las que encontrarán genealogías de muchísimos apellidos, y utilicen las formas para comenzar a armar su árbol.  

Nuestras reuniones periódicas están diseñadas con el propósito de intercambiar hallazgos, dudas, ideas y nuevas fuentes de información. Puede ir a "Calendar" para informarse sobre nuestras reuniones y eventos. ¡Le invitamos a asistir a una de ellas!
