New Mexico Churches - Professionally photographed Adobe churches in New Mexico by John Benigno. If you use the photos in your family history, please add: Copyright, John A. Benigno.

The set includes Old Presbyterian Church in Holman, New Mexico: "Originally, I thought this was San Isidro, the old Catholic Church in Holman. However, further research proved it to be the Agua Negra Presbyterian Church, no longer in use."


A special feature of NMGS Links:

"Orphaned" Records: Vital Information Found in Unexpected Places Sometimes you'll come across a record that would be valuable to genealogists, but it is in a very unusual place, as a marriage among death records or land transfers. We give you a "heads up" by listing them as they are reported to us. To contribute to the list, contact us at webmaster@nmgs.org.

Newspaper Obituaries - ObituariesHelp.org - Free online access to newspaper obituaries by state. Provides obituary resources like old newspaper obituaries archives, and downloadable genealogy forms. New Mexico obits are still light, but the project has promise.

A good online resource for printable family tree charts, tips and templates for creating a family tree, and examples for writing condolence letters.

The Office of the State Historian
Heritage Preservation is about working to save the tangible and intangible cultural production that embodies our collective histories: documents, architecture, communities and oral histories. The Office of the State Historian collaborates with archives, conservators, museums, communities, and concerned individuals across the state and nation who care about preserving our shared and individual pasts. OSH supports efforts to preserve the multi-layered histories of New Mexicans, the built environment, intercultural experiences, memories, and in accord with the agency's mission, the written record. The State Historian is a statutory member of the Cultural Properties Review Committee, the policy-making committee that oversees the Historic Preservation Division of the Cultural Affairs Department.
