New Mexico Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In the state of New Mexico, birth records are maintained by the New Mexico Vital Records Office. This agency keeps birth records that date back to 1920 along with some delayed records that date back as far as 1880. For Death Records The state agency in charge of death records in New Mexico is the Vital Records Office, which maintains an archive of death records dating back to 1920, with many delayed records that date back to 1880. For Obituaries New Mexico is a fast growing state thanks to one of the most beautiful landscapes in the country. If you are in search of New Mexico obituaries, the Internet is a great place to start your search. There are two major online resources that anyone from anywhere in the world can tap into, starting with the state wide New Mexico USGenWeb site. USGenWeb is a massive collection of state and regional websites that chronicle births, deaths and the intricate web of genealogy from one end of the country to the other. You will be able to find not only obits here but also death records and other information pertaining to current and past residents of The Land of Enchantment. There is also a separate Curry County NMGenWeb site that you can visit that has listings specifically from the Clovis News-Journal Newspapers from all the way back in 1912 to present day. This is one of the most comprehensive collections in the nation, however, it only features listings from this general area and may not be much help to those looking for records from the other side of the state. Currently, these are the two biggest resources for those looking for New Mexico obituary records. For Marriages New Mexico only keeps marriage records on the county level while divorce records means contacting the County Clerk of the county where the marriage occurred. This can prove difficult, as many people aren't even sure which county the record they need is held in.
