    I loved how this presentation offered research by time period and that the syllabus followed suit. I also appreciated the specific recommendations for reading material. As a researcher in the US Southwest Region, I found this information extremely useful. Thank you for passing on your wisdom Henrietta!

    Absolutely Brilliant webinar with lots of great information for Researching New Mexico Relatives.

    After years of research, Henrietta ALWAYS gives clues on where I might go next. She refreshes the Genealogy button!! Thanks again! Loved it.

    Amazing! I had no idea that New Mexico had any records before the 1900s.

    Encompassed amazing amounts of information!

    Excellent comprehensive presentation.

    My compliments to Henrietta on her tremendous body of work in helping to identify possible Spanish Patriots for NSDAR.



    Excelllent webinar.

    Good information on where to locate resources for New Mexico research!

    Henrietta gave a very informative session. Would love to attend any other webinars she may give.

    Henrietta Martinez Christmas presented a great webinar. Very organized and informative.

    I always enjoy hearing Henrietta Christmas speak. She is an extremely experienced researcher for New Mexico records.

    I am glad I watched this webinar even though I have no New Mexico family. I learned so much about the basic history of this state. I never dreamed that its history is that old! Wow!

    I like learning new things. Thanks

    interesting even though I don’t have any New Mexico ancestry

    Lots of great information!


    Speaker very knowledgeable and accessible

    Thanks! Very good!

    This was one of the best webinars I’ve attended. The presenter knows her stuff and was very level-headed about what you will find and what you simply won’t find given how young the state is. I especially appreciated the history of the area and geography being included in the presentation. Overall, excellent presenter and presentation.

    Very interesting and informative.

    Very thorough presentation for many periods of New Mexico history with an excellent handout.

    Very well done. Great New Mexico information and also excellent general research tips.

    What a lot of great information!

    What a wealth of information. I’ve been doing New Mexico genealogy for awhile, but I’m always amazed at how much there is to learn about it. I quickly realize just how little I actually know in the presence of someone like Henrietta M Christmas.
