Hello there New Mexican Researcher,
My name is Sam-Quito Padilla G., and I am the Head Coordinator for the New Mexico Death Index Project. I am sending and SOS out for assistance to the newest project under the NMDI (New Mexico Death Index) Project.
I am not sure if you are familiar with the project, check it out at: http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/nm/nmdi.htm . Although the NMDI Project is not completed, I wanted to give you an update on what is happening.
The Section 3 (years 1941 to 1950) has been put back at least until January of 2003. The death index has not been filmed, still on paper. The department said that they are very shorthanded and will try to get to the death index by December or early 2003. There are many people waiting for this section to be completed and will make an announcement when this part of the project starts.
Our volunteers are still very restless in doing something, so we have started to index the 1930 New Mexico Census. A soundex was not done for New Mexico and many other states for the 1930 Census. We have started this important project and looking for assistance from people as yourself. Please check out the NMDI website and see how you can help out in this important project as we need your help at: http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/nm/nmdi.htm and there is a link in the lower part of the page about the NMDI Projects.
Bye for now, Sam-Quito
