      HOGAR de Dallas was founded in 1998 for the purpose of stimulating interest in Hispanic genealogy, assisting in the research ... of Hispanic lineages, promoting an understanding of Hispanic heritage within the community, and supporting the genealogy section of the Erik Jonsson Public Library in Dallas and other libraries as deemed necessary. We encourage young people of Hispanic ancestry to trace their lineage. By doing so, our hope is that they gain a truer sense of self; to be proud of who they are by knowing where they came from.
