In Recognition and With Appreciation - DMAHL Lifetime Members

Frank Bravo

"I am a lifetime member of DMAHL because my parents, Mary Ann Nolasco, Marcelo J. Bravo, my grandparents, Virginia Bravo, Socorro López, Jesús G. Nolasco, as well as great-grandparents, Juan López and Anita Sosa all lived in the Barrio of Little México. Remember that any wealth or success you achieve, others have paved the path for you and these are a few of my ancestors who have done that for our family."

"Because USA history, in the main, is recounted from the majority population’s point of view, the existence and contributions of the different groups /ethnicities that actually make up our country go untold and undocumented for posterity. I realized that DMAHL was making an important contribution to preserving the history of the Hispanic/Latino inhabitants of 

Dallas so I have eagerly supported and applauded all the actions, time and energy put forth by its membership. Without this organization, there would be a huge omission in the history of Dallas county."

Bill Betzen

"It is obvious DMAHL is led by dedicated historians. I saw that repeatedly as I attended Board meetings. Their work reinforced the family history recording my middle school students were exploring and recording since 2005 in the School Time Capsule Project at Quintanilla Middle School. Now Quintanilla is among the 3 highest achieving middle schools in Dallas ISD. That is the power of history."
