The Great New Mexico Pedigree Database Portal

Welcome to the

Great New Mexico Pedigree Database Project

You have two choices - Both contain the same great ancestry information, but presented in two formats:

# 1 - This is our newest and most powerful genealogy database.

Great New Mexico Pedigree Database in webtrees

ARE YOU HAVING TROUBLE FINDING YOUR LISTING IN WEBTREES? In the event that you search for a living individual in Webtrees (without logging into a password protected account) you likely will read “The details of this individual are private.” You may think you are stuck. A good move would be: Under the icon “CHARTS” select “Ancestors” or “Compact tree” or “Family book” to gain access to relatives. From any of these charts you can view all non-living individuals in the GNMPD.

# 2 - This is our original database.

Changes to the GNMPD in this original format will always lag the Webrees format by several weeks.

The Great New Mexico Pedigree Database Project... What is it?

An ambitious project to organize immense amounts of research into one connected genealogical pedigree chart of New Mexico's Hispanic ancestry. It is the result of combining many different GEDCOM files (computer genealogy data format) as well as information from various published sources into one unified database.


To enable anyone, anywhere to have access to the most comprehensive, organized and accurate collection of New Mexico Hispanic Genealogical research via the Internet.


Access: It gives anyone, anywhere in the world with interest in New Mexico Hispanic Genealogy easy access to the combined research of dozens of New Mexico's foremost Hispanic genealogists.

Speed: It will give instant information on the latest research and put an end to endless hours of "reinventing of the wheel" by eliminating repetitive research into common ancestors.

Expansion: It will be updated allowing for growth in names, places, dates and sources.

Standardization: It provides a standard for usage of names, dates, places, etc.

Uniqueness: It shows the unique relationship that New Mexican Hispanics have as one large connected family.

Powerful - Not Perfect

We do not claim that everything in this database is exactly perfect. Just as information from the excellent and well-known publication, ORIGINS OF NEW MEXICO FAMILIES, has many times been corrected due to further research, we fully expect that some errors in this database will surface as new research serves to refine its accuracy. Thus we encourage anyone who wishes to submit corrections to us via the email option in the database.


For persons born within the last 100 years and when no death date has been reported, notice that most of the data for those persons has been omitted. All submitted data is retained in full in the HGRC master database and is available to authorized family researchers.
