A Socorro, New Mexico Reminiscence Blog

I found the blog Start Up of a Socorro Adventure a couple of months ago. I found an article that mentioned my dad, Bobby Baca. However, it seems that the page has dissappeared since then.

The blog includes stories about the author's experience in Socorro when he was growing up. I find it interesting because it mentions people that I know, including relatives. For instance, for a short time in his youth, the author lived in the home of my maternal grandfather, Santiago Baca. A few of my Zimmerly releatives are mentioned, including my great-aunt Cecelia Zimmerly. And the author notes that my father Bobby Baca had passed away.

There are some great old pictures of Socorro including the old Socorro High and a few homes. There are also pictures from various school reunions and the author's relatives.

It's a good site. I recommend it if you are interested in learning about Socorro as it was overr 50 years ago.
