Online Genealogical Resources on the LoboVault website

Searching through the LoboVault website, I discovered a few online theses, disertations and other material that is of interest to New Mexico genealogists. Here are links to these online PDF files:

* The History of the Sevilleta Land Grant and in the First Person: Oral Histories from La Joya de Sevilleta "The Jewel of the Sevilleta  

"The oral histories that are the centerpiece of this thesis present the history of La Joya in the 1930s, together with an overview of the history of the Sevilleta. Most significantly, they support the conviction that oral history is invaluable in acquiring a more informed historical record of the past than is offered in our official written archives alone."

 * The Genealogy of a Text and Text of Genealogy: Rafael Chacon's "Memorias"

"A discussion of the Rafael Sotero Chacon ''MEMORIAS. '"

* New Mexico roots ltd : a demographic perspective from genealogical, historical and geographic data found in the diligencias matrimoniales or pre-nuptial investigations (1678-1869) of the Archives of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe : multiple data extracted and here edited in a uniform presentation by years and family surnames

"Diligencias matrimoniales or pre-nuptial investigations (1678-1869) of the Archives of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. Volumes are arranged in alphabetical order by surname. Names contained within each volume are indicated."

* The Lives and Works of Five Hispanic New Mexican Women Writers, 1878 - 1991

"This working paper recognizes the contributions of five New Mexican women writers, who in the early 1900s, sought to reaffirm their Hispanic roots through literature."

* Ranching in Northeastern New Mexico

"Historians have studied ranching extensively in Texas, Wyoming, and Montana. There are many monographs published on ranches, ranchers, and cowboys. Colfax and Union counties have an extensive number of ranches. These ranches are from as small as ten acres to as large as 590,000 acres. These ranches in their own right deserve to be studied, especially since they were a part of at least two legitimate land grants: Maxwell Land Grant and Pablo Montoya Land Grant. In addition, some of these ranches exist because of the railroad, which runs through both counties. This thesis examines a few of the many ranches in this area. It also includes a brief history of the Santa Fe Trail Dry Cimarron Cutoff area."
