Compiled by Virginia Langham Olmsted, G.R.S.

From the first few paragraphs of the Preface:
" Censuses of the Spanish and Mexican eras in New Mexico are filled with valuable information for Hispanic and Native American genealogists. This collection of censuses, together with a first volume, Spanish and Mexican Colonial Censuses of New Mexico, 1790, 1823 and 1845 (Book B2), gives the researcher a century of New Mexico families before the area came under the jurisdiction of the United States.

"Although the 1750 census of New Mexico is a complete census, the information recorded by the enumerators varies with each locality and official. I have compiled the censuses with all information given by the friars or civil officials who recorded the original documents. The archaic spellings and the abbreviations of baptismal names and surnames have been retained."

A list follows of abbreviations used throughout the book, as well as ethnic terms.

This is publication B3 of the NMGS Press.
