On March 10, 2007, the New Mexico Genealogical Society released the book "Aqui Se Comienza". The book is a genealogy of the Spanish founding families of Alburquerque, New Mexico. Pictured are some of the book's authors. I am the man standing 3rd from the left.

The book took 3 1/2 years to publish. Originally it was supposed to be published by March 2006 for the Alburquerque Tricentennial. However, the editors wanted to make sure that it was as polished a work as possible. Personally, I took about 3 months to research and write the two chapters that I contributed.

For more information about the book, visit the New Mexico Genealogical Society website.
