New Mexico Death Index Project (1899-1940)
The Donors and Volunteers of the NMDI Project dedicate this project to the memory of Vincent P. Story. Vincent was one of our early volunteers and typed up a section of the G files for us. When we ran short on volunteers, he offered to type another letter. Sadly, Vincent died before he was able to finish. We received a note from Mrs. Story who assured us that our project kept Vincent busy and that he was delighted to be part of this project.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE NMDI PROJECTThe NMDI (New Mexico Death Index) Project was a private project started by Sam-Quito Padilla G. along with a number of generous volunteers and donors. With the California Birth and Death Index being on-line for researchers to use, Sam-Quito inquired about the New Mexico Indices at the Special Collection Library in Albuquerque. One of the librarians had the answer to that question: we have two microfilms of the death index.
Sam-Quito asked NMGenWeb about taking on the task of transcribing the index to put on-line. Since other important issues needed to be addressed by NMGenWeb, the project was started privately by Sam-Quito. He sent out the request for volunteers and donors. Several of NMGenWeb's County Coordinators along with other wonderful people came to the rescue and the NMDI Project began in August of 2000.
There have been a number of setbacks and delays (disappearing volunteers with information, no funds for photocopies, etc.). Nevertheless, the project has been completed. Without the help of the volunteers and/or donors, this project would not be on-line. Please view the list of donors and volunteers and if you know any of them, send them a THANK YOU email.
