Carpool to Socorro for March 19th NMGS Program

Yesterday, I posted an announcement about a program that I will be giving in Socorro, New Mexico on March 19th. I received a request from one man who will need a ride from Albuquerque to Socorro for the program. He will help pay for gas.

If you would like to take him down to Socorro, or if you would like to arrange for a carpool from Albuquerque or elsewhere, contact me (Robert Baca) at (505) 299-7883. I will not be able to personally carpool with anyone since I will be visiting family before and after the program.

The New Mexico Genealogical Society Presents

Robert J. C. Baca

"Baca y Baca: Two Families from Socorro"
(10:30 AM)


"The Zimmerly Family of Socorro, New Mexico"
(2:00 PM)

(Lunch is on your own)

This special "double feature" presentation by New Mexico Genealogical Society president Robert J. C. Baca will be given in his home town of Socorro, New Mexico.

At 10:30 AM, Robert will discuss the origins of two Baca families. One family came from Belen; the other from Peña Blanca. Discover how these two families became part of early Socorro history.

At 2 PM, Robert will speak about the Zimmerly Family of Socorro, New Mexico. Samuel Zimmerly, a Swiss-born Civil War soldier, fell in love with and married Paubla Torres, a daughter of an old New Mexican family. Their family history extends from the beginnings of Spanish New Mexican history up into statehood and beyond.

Come see one or both of these programs

Both programs are free and open to the public.
