The city of Santa Fe was established in 1610 and named for a city in Spain built in 1492 by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. The oldest church and house in the U.S. are still standing in Santa Fe, built well before the Pilgrims' landing on the east coast of the continent. The Santa Fe County Courthouse address is P.O. Box 1985, Santa Fe, NM 87501. Phone (505) 986-6280; FAX (505) 995-2767.
E-mail: RBustamante@co.santa-fe.nm.us

Diocese: This county is within the Catholic Archdiocese of Santa Fe (see map). Where can you search the records, books, and microfilm? See Records for the sources and addresses known to date.
