The New Mexico Genealogical Society
Paleography and How Spanish Documents Can Unlock Family History
Robert Martinez
Assistant State Historian
Paleography is the study of ancient writings and inscriptions, including their dating and cultural context. Learning how to use old Spanish documents can help to fill in important details about the lives of your ancestors.

These records are found in the Spanish Archives of NewMexico, Series I and II, as well as in many additional collections housed at the New Mexico State Archives in Santa Fe and other locations around our State.

Robert will also discuss period customs.

This program is free and open to the public.
