Northern New Mexico Families

López, Argüello, Velarde, García, de Herrera, Candelaria and other northern New Mexico families

Please note: I am no longer maintaining/updating these pages. The information contained here is correct as of the last update. The current Northern New Mexico Families database site is located at


The pages that follow are the result of several years research into my maternal ancestry.  While my emphasis has been on the surnames listed above, I have gathered information on many collateral surnames.  So far, most of the data have been abstracted from the United States Federal Censuses for New Mexico and various Catholic Church records, by going through the records and recording every incidence of these surnames, whether in my lineage or not.

30 July 2001: I have removed my sources and notes, because including them was making the data files too large and unwieldy. I have documentation for everything in this database, and source information is available on request.

Current source of information:  LDS film #0016637 (Archdiocese of Santa Fé, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Baptisms, 1850-1889).

Please note:  the data pages themselves are large (300-500 kb) and take a while to load; please be patient.  :-)

Comments, corrections and suggestions are welcome. No solicitations, please!
