This is a revised edition to the well-thumbed earlier issues of Genealogical
Resources in New Mexico, initially by Dr. Robert E. Esterly, and the 2nd and
3rd editions by Certified Genealogist Karen S. Daniel. Due to the great interest
that genealogy has generated in the ensuing years, this new publication contains
updated websites and repositiories.
The state of New Mexico offers an unparalleled abundance of resource material
covering its long and interesting history and ethnic diversity. Resources in genealogy
have developed at such a fast pace both within the state and nationally, it has
become imperative to provide researchers with this updated and revised publication.
