Introduction
This is a guide to the microfilm edition of the sacramental records of baptism, confirmation, marriage, and burial records of the Diocese of Gallup to 1920. The original records, beginning in 1777, are in the custody of the Diocese of Gallup. Earlier original records, some beginning in 1699, are in the custody of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. This is a preliminary survey, subject to correction. When the extractions have been completed, a new, expanded guide with corrections will be produced..

The Diocese of Gallup was established in 1939, having been carved out of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and the Diocese of Tucson. In 1969, the Diocese of Phoenix, in turn, was carved out of the Diocese of Gallup. Though the Diocese of Gallup was not established until 1939, missions and parishes included in the Diocese date much earlier; Acoma (1629), Zuņi (1629), Laguna (1699), Seboyeta (Cebolleta) (1746), San Rafael (1879), Gallup (1889), Blanco (1900), Farmington (1900), Cuba (Nacimiento) (1916), and Lumberton (1919). Early parishes in Arizona that are included within the Diocese are St. John's (San Juan) (1877), Springerville (1890), Winslow (1896), St. Michaels (1898), Chinle (1906), Fort Defiance (1915, 1961), and Lukachukai (1915). Sacramental records for Acoma, 1725-1777, and Zuņi, 1699-1775, have been microfilmed previously and are available at the New Mexico State Records Center and Archives and other repositories.

In New Mexico the Diocese of Gallup encompasses the counties of Catron, Cibola, McKinley, San Juan and parts of Rio Arriba, Sandoval, and Bernalillo. In Arizona the Diocese of Gallup encompasses the eastern Arizona counties and includes the Navajo and Hopi Reservations.

The Hispanic Genealogical Research Center of New Mexico (HGRC) inventoried twenty-seven bound volumes of records containing approximately six thousand pages. The record books are in varying states of repair. The books are bound in leather casings, in cloth, in cardboard, and some in plain paper. Some books have broken spines. Portions of some books are illegible.

The Gallup diocesan records are historically significant to genealogists and historians. The Territory of New Mexico did not begin maintaining civil birth and death records until 1907 and even these records are sporadic. Along with the name of the child and the name of parents, the records often provide a birth date, names of grandparents, ethnicity, and place of residence. The information also documents the social, ethno-history of northwestern New Mexico and eastern Arizona.

Funding for this project was provided in part by the New Mexico Historical Records Advisory Board (NMHRAB). Under the general guidelines established by the NMHRAB, the microfilming project qualified primarily as a preservation project described by the NMHRAB in "Collecting 400 Years of Recorded History: Summary Report of the Strategic Plan (1998)."

The project was a collaborative effort undertaken by the Hispanic Genealogical Research Center of New Mexico, the Diocese of Gallup, the New Mexico State Records Center and Archives, and the Office of Historical and Artistic Patrimony of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. Volunteer members Armando Sandoval, Ernestino Tafoya, Gloria Sanchez, Tony Gallegos, Francisco Sisneros, and Bob and Priscilla Greene performed all tasks related to the project; inventory, prepping, microfilming, and indexing. HGRC Board President Ronald Miera supervised all aspects of the project. Lupita T. Quintana of the Micrographics Bureau of the Records Management Division of the State Records Center and Archives assisted with the technical aspects of the microfilming project. Deacon Joe Krikiwa of the Diocese of Gallup collected the books from the parishes and missions and transported them to Santa Fe. Marina Ochoa of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe provided for the safeguarding of the books in Santa Fe.

In 1999, Bishop Donald E. Pelotte of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gallup gave the Hispanic Genealogical Research Center of New Mexico permission to inventory and microfilm the records. The HGRC wishes to thank Bishop Pelotte for realizing the significance of the project and allowing the project to proceed. All participants involved are much richer for his wisdom and generosity.
