Many of our ancestors where Spanish explorers and even led explorations into what is now New Mexico. Many of them also stayed there and helped colonize it but many of their children ended back in what is now Mexico.
If you have traced your ancestors to New Mexico or as it used to be called Nuevo Mexico Then you might want to look into the two PDF eBooks that I found last month. They are titled The Spanish Archives of New Mexico Volume 1 and Volume 2.
This volumes are compilations transcribed and translated documentes.
Volume one starts with a document dated 3-26-1685 and ends up with a document dated 1-22-1845
Volume two starts with a document dated 1-9-1621 and ends up with a document dated 1-17-1822

hope that you find these two eBooks useful, Let me know about your discoveries int eh comment section of this post or on facebook.
