A Difficult Birth:
The Re-Settlement Families of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores de la Joya de Sevilleta, 1800-1819
La Joya de Sevilleta, located strategically in central New Mexico along the Camino Real, was already a large community before 1819. This presentation will discuss events beginning in 1800 leading up to the conveyance of the La Joya de Sevilleta land grant in 1819, and will focus on the re-settlement families, the surprising places they came from, and the difficulties they endured.
Francisco Sisneros is a life-long student of New Mexico history and culture. As time has permitted over the last 33 years, he has researched numerous articles and made many presentations on these topics. He and his wife Inez live in Casa Colorada, New Mexico.
After Francisco’s presentation, join members of the New Mexico Genealogical Society on the 2nd Floor at the Genealogy Center to research your own genealogy and answer any questions that you may have.
