The March 2009 issue of the New Mexico Genealogist was mailed out yesterday. If you are a member of the New Mexico Genealogical Society, you should be receiving your issue soon.
It is the "Special Founding Families of Alburquerque Issue". Two years ago, NMGS published the book Aqui Se Comienza: A Genealogical History of the Founding Families of La Villa de San Felipe de Alburquerque. (Link) This issue is our first attempt at collecting additional articles that compliment the book. We hope that others will be inspired by our efforts into sending us additional articles about the founding families.
