Initially I focused on my paternal CORDOVA family line. As I discovered more information on ancestors, I've branched out to discover more about my ancestral grandmothers whose surnames disappear when they take on their spouse's surname. I am particularly committed to discover more about these grandmothers. I welcome contact from anyone with information on these early New Mexico surnames. Thank you.
