As part of the Genealogy Lecture Series at Santa Fe Main Library, Henrietta Martinez Christmas and Paul Rhetts will talk about their new book, The Basic Genealogy Checklist. They will talk about all the tools and resources available to anyone exploring their family genealogy.
The book explains everything from libraries, cemeteries, census forms, family bibles, enlistment forms, and newspapers, to Ancestry.com and the Mormon Church. Henrietta Christmas has a special expertise in Hispanic genealogy and is the current President of the New Mexico Genealogical Society. Both Christmas and Rhetts have done books on genealogy.
