The Center for Land Grant Studies

I found this link while looking for something else. It is The Center for Land Grant Studies. From the site:

The Center for Land Grant Studies is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization devoted to research, education and distribution of books and other materials about the Southwest, with an emphasis on land and water rights issues of traditional communities in New Mexico. The Center focuses on Spanish and Mexican Land Grants made to Hispanics and Native Americans, as well as genealogical materials connected with the rural communities of New Mexico.

The site has a catalogue of books, manuscripts, genealogical materials, and other sources on New Mexico land grant studies. There is also a "preliminary" land grant database on the site.

Also on the site are notes from a Malcolm Ebright lecture on the essential elements of New Mexico land grants, and the complete text of The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo , among other items of interest.
