A Preliminary Guide to Historical Records Sources On Latinos In New York State
Appendix B: Potential Historical Records Sources on Latinos in New York State
These potential records identity sources that probably include Latinos, even though they were not specifically mentioned in subject entries. The following subject terms were used to locate some of these records: Affirmative Action, Minorities, Immigration, Education, and Inmates of Institutions. This phase of the research was inevitably imprecise; some of the records saved may not include specific reference to Latinos, and some that do refer to Latinos may have been missed. As Latinos participate in all aspects of life in New York State, it was not possible to locate all records that might include reference to them. Church records, hospital records, public school enrollment records, for example, were not included in this initial investigation; they could be fruitful subjects for further research.
These holdings contain records relating to affirmative action in New York State; none refer specifically to Latinos.
