Are you doing research on your New Mexico ancestors, and you want to know more about them and their communities? One way to do this is to look at the original land grant case documents. Before, you would have to go to the library to look at microfilm. However, many of the land grant cases are now online! You can do your research at home!
The UNM CSWR Catron Land Grant Cases digital collection can be found on the Center for Southwest Research website. Click on this link to view the documents. Thousands of pages are online - and most of the documents (if not all) are translated into English!
