The Society meets monthly at 7:00 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month [except Nov. which is the third due to Thanksgiving] starting each fall in September through May in the spring at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library (TBML) on 200 East Picacho Avenue, telephone 505/526-1045. See the 1998 Meeting Agenda for upcoming meeting topics. You can also read the minutes of prior meetings if your interested in the topics that have been covered. (under construction)
Although we strive for accuracy, the society cannot be responsible for errors in fact or opinion expressed by the reports referred to in this web site on Southern New Mexico Genealogy materials. Please send proof of error by e.mail and corrections will be made.
As an all-volunteer group, we are unable to provide extensive genealogical research. We can supply a list of researchers-for-hire upon written request.
As a service to "internet rooters", our society is providing listings of known cemeteries by county, with known sexton addresses and phone numbers when at all possible, in the Southern Part of New Mexico starting with Dona Ana County. "Rooters" are encouraged to please make their first contact with the cemetery sextons by letter and limit your phone calls to follow-up and clearification questions. This will lead to less confussion for the sexton's office and result in better and more detailed information for you. These lists were built from the 24 October 1988 published state-wide list of cemeteries done by the New Mexico Cemeteries Association [R Genealogy 929.3789 N c.1, Self 32 of TBML, Las Cruces, NM]. As our society completes the grave stone listings of local cemeteries, we will add to the end of the county cemetery list that the head stone inventory report is available in the Genealogy Section of the TBML.
If you beleive this cemetery service could be helpful, please drop us an e.mail message via firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also like to hear from locals who know of other cemeteries not listed or know of changes in cemetery sextons.
