The events listed below might interest the friends of New Mexico’s history, of course including the French in New Mexico, but also other events which lovers of Western History might want to attend in New Mexico and other places. These are the events I know about, many are missing. Please send me your events.

Most events are cancelled because of the Corona virus pandemic. Please check before attending. Cancellations are not always posted on the organizers’ websites.

Note to New Mexico Genealogists:
The Albuquerque Genealogical Society meets twice a month in Albuquerque from 10:30am to noon.
