ICON (NEWS) that appears on the right side of our Main Page of our website.
Our approach and style in sharing the NEWS!
On this 22nd day of May 2018…Happy Birthday papá Arturo. Dad arrived at St. Paul, Marion County, USA in 1943. It was his arrival and the marriage to --mi mama --Maria who inspired us to create our website. Dad was born in Asherton, Dimmit County, Texas on May 22nd, 1912.
This section of our website includes old news, as well as some contemporary news. Via my research of National Newspapers, I am hopeful that I can find relevant and related stories that can supplement, confirm, verify many of my own stories. It is almost like a pen-pal approach. As you visit this section "NEWS" you will find an opportunity for you to also participate by posting your comments/opinions or questions. Due to "Father Time" it is not likely that you will find postings from people who are 70+ years old" Yours truly keeps active in this endeavor of research and saving our history as remembered by people who use the 1st person singular; which means that a conventional research format or style will not be used.
TIMELINE FOR NEWS: All relevant news reports that I can find prior to 1968 will be included; why 1968? well, it is because Lidia my future wife found me working on my car…always under the hood; thank you Lidia! We both support and work on this project that has turned out to be a lifetime endeavor. Our house is wall to ceiling … paper work and AV that is dated and important to us. YES in 1968, we got married!...and I still work on cars; it is my hobby!
Here is a link or an example of the format that you can expect. We have placed the ICON and the stories under this heading to give credit to the authors/newspapers; their effort was dated when it was published. Our contribution to this effort is to expand on the story, this is also dated. Keep in mind that we use a little bit of Spanglish-Tex-Mex. The fact that we have lived in Oregon since 1952, which is about the time that Oregon had a Migrant Population explosion, gives Lidia and Miguel a VANTAGE POINT. We regard this to be a blessing and we are honored to share the Newspaper Stories along with how Miguel and Lidia view the subject then and now. Using our independent oral-history research and the vast A/V material we have collected, we offer a unique point of view. We are independent and have no ties to political groups, clubs, agencies or organizations to guide and/or influence our work. Admittedly, we wish there were more people interested in oral history and/or simply writers of Mexican Roots, who could share their experiences/views and not always rely on the general MEDIA.
A LABOR OF LOVE AND IN PROGRESS Through our visitors, we can improve our website and bring more clarity and content to an important arm of US History…."LA VIDA MIGRANTE." Please use the contact page and let us know how we can improve our efforts. conAMISTAD Miguel y Lidia Owners of www.texmexorusa.org … where its "OK" to use a bit of SPANGLISH!
Un nuevo estilo para compartir las noticias de ayer!
Mayo 22, 2018
Le deseo hoy a papa Arturo "Feliz Día" Mi papa nació el 22 de Mayo de 1912. Los datos indican que fue el primer Tejano de llegar al pueblo de St. Paul, Marion County, USA en 1943. "Your dad and I arrived to St. Paul the same year" recuerda Elaine Smith, quien todavia vive en St. Paul. Siendo el único Tejano con una personalidad fácil de recordar…gente de 90 años para arriba lo recuerdan. Gracias Elaine por tus contribuciones!
Miguel y Lidia
Es un honor como los primeros Mejicanos graduantes en 1966--Miguel de Gervais y Lidia de Woodburn. Aun es un honor tambien tratamos el portal de información como una responsabilidad.
El nuevo estilo de compartir con ustedes…incluye el uso de los periódicos que presentan un punto de vista. Es nuestra tarea de añadir a la historia con datos que nosotros sabemos. Los datos pueden complementar el articulo u tener un debate amistoso, consta que nosotros lo vemos de un punto Tex-Mex de multi-dimensiones.
Hemos incluido unos links para que vean el contraste y formen una mejor idea de lo que pasaba en una ERA diferente a la de hoy. Los temas varean y la mayoría fueron publicados antes del 1968; este año es SIGNO del fin del camino.."Pioneros de Oregon."
NUESTRA LABOR LA ACEPTAMOS COMO UN HONOR
Al momento nosotros somos la única fuerza independiente en el tema de "La Vida Migrante en Oregon."
MANTENIENDO BUEN TRABAJO

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA ARTURO 5.22.2018
My dad spent his last days at our home; the room where he slept is a few feet from my computer…this is a special MOMENT.
Arturo was my step-father. I first met my dad at the Hotel Janeiro in Guadalajara, Jalisco Mejico. He brought me to Oregon in the same year-1952.
