Articles, Journals & PDF's

As I researched my family history, I did a great deal of reading. Many of my ancestors lived in New Mexico for hundreds of years, so understanding the history of New Mexico and the different regions my ancestors lived in has been very important to tracking down records, finding clues on lines that have gone cold, navigating through the coding of the caste system and being able to imagine what life was like for them. I found these articles so interesting, so I thought I'd share my list of articles I've read throughout this process. If you put these titles or the website link in your browser you should be able to find them online.
