The History and People of the Socorro Land Grant
In 1815, 60+ families re-settled the community of Socorro, New Mexico. They established a land grant that was later challenged in court by the U.S. Government. Two centuries after its founding, genealogist and Socorro native Robert J. C. Baca investigates the history and people of the Socorro Land Grant.

Robert J.C. Baca is a past president of the New Mexico Genealogical Society. He has been researching his family history for over 15 years, and has published numerous articles about Socorro. He has presented papers for NMGS, the Historical Society of New Mexico and the San Miguel Historical Committee.
