The New Mexico Genealogical Society welcomes articles from genealogists, historians,
and others interested in genealogical research. The NMGS publishes articles on these
- descriptions or itemizations of genealogical materials, records, and collections
- research techniques and procedures
- historical events with genealogical impact on New Mexico ancestry
- current events affecting genealogy and family history
- book reviews of genealogical publication
Articles for beginning or experienced genealogists are beneficial to our readership.
Genealogies and examples of problem solving are accepted for publication if they
are documented, emphasize effective research procedures and evidence evaluation,
and/or thoroughly explain a new or unique research technique.
Sources used in the compilation should be described fully. It is our policy
to provide previously unpublished genealogical records or material, particularly
that which is not readily accessible to our readers.
The editor reserves the right to accept or decline any article submitted. Contributors
are responsible for accuracy, omissions or factual errors, and for documenting statements
of fact or statistical information, including the source for abstracted or transcribed
records. Articles of varying length will be considered; longer articles may be serialized.
These should be properly documented with footnotes or endnotes, and if appropriate,
a bibliography. Citations should follow Evidence! Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian by
Elizabeth Shown Mills, and secondarily, The Chicago Manual of Style. It is preferred that lineage
compilations follow formatting as outlined in The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual, Millennium Edition,
published by the Board for Certification of Genealogists. These books are available
for purchase through the NMGS BookStore. Photographs
and maps are welcome.
If possible, it is requested that material be submitted on both computer disk
and follow-up paper copy. Authors, please provide your name and mailing address,
plus other contact information, such as telephone number, e-mail address, and/or
1) Permission to publish. (Please
initial your preference and submit this form with your article.)
