Obituary: Santiago Baca

I found the following obituary at the Albuquerque Special Collections Library. There is a database that includes images of obituaries from the Albuquerque Journal beginning in the 1930s and continuing on into 2006. The Albuquerque Genealogical Society donated this database to the library.

Santiago Baca was my maternal grandfather.
