Scope of project

This project identifies soldiers, friars and members of the 70 families involved in the process of reconquest and recolonization of Nuevo Mexico, now New Mexico, which began in 1692, following the bloody Pueblo Revolt of 1680.

A list of the 70 families was recorded by Don Diego de Vargas in his journals 1692-1694.
