This is a revised edition to the well-thumbed earlier issues of Genealogical Resources in New Mexico, initially by Dr. Robert E. Esterly, and the 2nd and 3rd editions by Certified Genealogist Karen S. Daniel. Due to the great interest that genealogy has generated in the ensuing years, this new publication contains updated websites and repositories.

The state of New Mexico offers an unparalleled abundance of resource material covering its long and interesting history and ethnic diversity. Resources in genealogy have developed at such a fast pace both within the state and nationally, it has become imperative to provide researchers with this updated and revised publication.
