{{Chile-sidebar}}{{breadcrumb| link1=[[Chile Genealogy|Chile]]| link2=| link3=| link4=| link5=[[Chile Societies|Societies]]}}There are many societies and organizations that may have information of value to your genealogical research. There are a few such societies in Chile and in the country your ancestor immigrated to or emigrated from, especially the United States. You may find it helpful to join one of these societies and support their efforts.
=== Genealogical Societies ===
There are few genealogical societies that emphasize Latin American research. Most societies publish periodicals, transcripts, and compiled genealogies; and may have special indexes, collections, and projects that can help you locate your ancestors. Some may publish inquiries about Hispanic ancestors, if requested, or maintain a list of members’ research interests. Some specialize in the immigrants to a specific area.
The following societies may be of interest:
