    405: Cines de Cuba - photographer Carolina Sandretto

    405: Cines de Cuba - photographer Carolina Sandretto

    Welcome to episode 405: we interview Italian photographer Carolina Sandretto about her book "Cines de Cuba" 

    Exerpt from the book jacket: "In 1953, Cuba had 694 cinemas and theaters. Havana alone had 134, more than New York or Paris. In 2014, documentary photographer Carolina Sandretto set out to find and photograph, with a 1950s medium-format camera, the remaining cinemas from that golden era. This book is a visual document of her journey."



    Her book is available on Amazon. You can also visit her website: www.cinesdecuba.com for free access to an interactive map with cinema locations throughout Cuba.

    In honor of St Patrick's Day, we would like to share a research project by Giselle Gonzalez-Garcia from the book, Ireland and Cuba: Entangled Histories. The researcher uses cemetery records (1859-1862) to explore Irish immigration to Cuba.

    402: Women's Movement in Cuba 1898-1940 Interview with Dr Lynn Stoner

    Celebrating Women's History Month/El Mes de la Historia de la Mujer!

    Welcome to the Cuban Genealogy Podcast! Where we discuss all things related to tracing your Cuban genealogy! In this episode we will hear about the women’s movement in Cuba from 1890-1940. We will have a candid conversation with my university professor, Dr Lynn Stoner. We will discuss the women’s movement by comparing two generations, that of my grandmother and her mother, my great grandmother. My great grandmother was born before Independence from Spain and my grandmother after Independence from Spain.  I hope you enjoy the discussion and can get a glimpse of what life was like for our female ancestors in Cuba. Thank you for listening, I’m your host…Brian Tosko Bello.

Lynn Righter ,

A true gem!

This podcast has been an interesting listen especially when there seems to be so little Cuban genealogy resources available. I appreciate the host’s eagerness to put topics into context and understanding how other global events help shape the history of Cuba.
