Died: Andy Segura, NMGS President 1986-1990

Andres Jesus Segura, known as 'Andy' to many members of the Society, passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2008. Andy had served as NMGS President from 1986 through 1990, and as editor of the New Mexico Genealogist from 1989 through 1996 (during the last years co-edited with Ernie Jaskolski).

From the obituary: A 12th generation New Mexican, Mr. Segura was born September 1948 in the Los Griegos area of Albuquerque. He was a descendant of New Mexico's original Spanish families and the founding families of Albuquerque and Los Griegos. He was the son of Jesus M. and Eufemia Herrera Segura, both of whom preceded him in death. As a genealogical researcher, Andy taught and lectured on the origins of New Mexico's Spanish families for many years.

A mass is set for Saturday, April 19, 11 a.m., at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic church. Other arrangements are available at www.frenchmortuary.com.
