The New Mexico Genealogical Society presents

Historian and Author

Ruben Salas

Discussing his book

“The Santa Fe Ring
New Mexico Land Grants”

The Santa Fe Ring was a group of powerful lawyers and land speculators who swindled land grants away from many New Mexican families during the 19th Century. Historian and author Ruben Salas provides documentation and startling facts showing how the Santa Fe Ring systematically and deliberately manipulated the law to their own ends.

Salas will sign his book "The Santa Fe Ring and New Mexico Land Grants" before the program. Copies of this and his other books will be available for purchase.

This program is free and open to the public.
