General Information On New Mexico Genealogy Records
For those in New Mexico, genealogy records are readily available for research. If you are like many others, you want to have access to the family's history and information about what your family did, where they lived and other details. The only way to get this information, though, is by using a variety of sources to find it. In New Mexico, there is some information that is easy to find and other data that is not available. The state does have current records that are easy to obtain, but older records can be more troublesome because of a lack of a recording system. Nevertheless, there are a few ways you can find what you need.
 
If you are using New Mexico genealogy records tools, you will find most of the information you need. One good place to start is with the state's vital records. The state did not officially require that these documents be sent to the state offices for filing until 1920. Some on file with this agency date back to 1889, though. Prior to this time period, only local towns and sometimes counties gathered information on the births and deaths occurring in the state. This often was done through the town clerk's office. For older records, finding local sources like this is usually necessary.
 
If you need birth records or death records from 1889 through the present time, it is a good idea to turn to the department of health first. You can contact this agency in person or by writing to the following address.
 
New Mexico Department of Health
Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics
1190 St Francis Drive
PO Box 26110
Santa Fe, New Mexico 87504
 
If you do not find the records you need through this source, there are other ways to gather New Mexico genealogy records. A good place to start with records searches is with the most local resource you have. If you know the county of the individual or even the town, then using the resources from those agencies is best. If not, consider the larger churches that were around during their lifetime. Many agencies and church organizations have records dating back through the 1800's. However, keep in mind those missionaries who came to New Mexico often kept fragmented records. This means that only a small portion of information may be available if at all.
 
Other resources for finding New Mexico genealogy records include the various military reestablishments and forts in the area. The Civil War records may provide some information. This may be limitedly available because of the more remote area and the lack of records on file. You can also turn to area cemeteries, especially those that were present during the 1800's or even earlier. These often contain data not only about the individual but also about his or her family. Take a few minutes to research the options available to you and piece together your family tree one step at a time. It can be a lot of fun to do that.
