The New Mexico Genealogical Society
Mora County Guardianships, New Mexico

Extracted by Ann Mossman

From the New Mexico Genealogist, Vol 36:1, March 1997.

The guardianship records listed here were abstracted from a book titled Mora County Guardianships, New Mexico, 1882-1889. This page presents records of 1882-1885 as they were published in the Genealogist Vol. 36:1 [Mar 1997].
Records of 1886-1889 were published in the Genealogist 36:2 [June 1997] and will be added here as soon as possible. The guardianship book is housed at the New Mexico State Records Center and Archives, 1205 Camino Carlos Rey, Santa Fe, NM.
