Most of these names are in the book.
Find your ancestors.

These pages list the names of French-speaking people and families in New Mexico since the 1500s. They include French, French Canadians, and others associated with the history of New Mexico and France.

The list is updated regularly as I find new names. There are names not yet included in this list, some are under the other tabs (priests, Albuquerque, Civil War etc.), some are yet to be found.

I have separately compiled biographies and references for many of these names.   The final list of names will be assembled in a companion biographical volume. I am in contact with descendants of many of these families in New Mexico, the rest of the United Sates, Canada, and France.

I will be happy to share more detailed information upon request.

I would appreciate any contribution to this list.

Thank you.
