So what do Billy the Kid, Smokey Bear, Kit Carson, Microsoft, atomic bombs, and Isabella of Castile have in common?
They each in some way have iconic connections to our 47th state, the Land of Enchantment, which was admitted to the Union on January 6, 1912. And you can learn more about each of them and their place in New Mexico’s rich cultural history during GeneaBlogie’s All-New Mexico Weekend!
And there’s more! We’ll discuss conducting genealogical research in New Mexico and the genealogy of some of the leading figures in New Mexico history, which of course stretches back many, many centuries before Europeans and the first Africans arrived.
Check frequently during the weekend for something different each time.
O, Fair New Mexico, we love you so!
