Native American Genealogical Resources for New Mexico

Native American Genealogical Resources for New Mexico

By Karen Stein Daniel, CGSM

Patterned after the 3rd edition of Genealogical Resources for New Mexico, this new resource guide is for genealogical and family history researchers of New Mexico Apache, Navajo, Pueblo, and Ute families.

The guide is extensively researched with annotated bibliographies. It includes chapters on archives, libraries, and museums, church resources, Federal Government resources, Family History Library microfilm, internet resources, vital record resources, and additional resources.

Information is also included for members of these tribes who may have lived, at least part of the time, in Arizona, Colorado, or Utah.

The book is indexed and contains 255 pages, keys to using the guide, a list of terms, and a discussion of the Genealogical Proof Standard.

About the author: NMGS member Karen Stein Daniel is a certified genealogist and a former editor of the New Mexico Genealogist. She is author of several books for the New Mexico Genealogical Society, including two editions of Genealogical Resources for New Mexico, New Mexico Mining Fatalities and Accidents, and Naturalization Records by New Mexico Courts.

November 23,2008 at 3pm at Bookworks, 4022 Rio Grande in the Flying Star Plaza

For more than four hundred years in New Mexico, Pueblo Indians and Spaniards have lived “together yet apart.” Now the preeminent historian of that region’s colonial past offers a fresh, balanced look at the origins of a precarious relationship.

John L. Kessell’s Pueblos,Spaniards, and the Kingdom of New Mexico is the first narrative history devoted to the tumultuous seventeenth century in New Mexico. Kessell clearly describes the Pueblo world encountered by Spanish conquistador Juan de OƱate and portrays important but lesser-known Indian partisans, while weaving analysis and interpretation into the flow of life in 17th century New Mexico.
