Thank you for all of your time and effort for working on this census.

If you are a descendant of the Conquistadores and the Indian women, you may want to start comparing the information on this census to the following lists on Nancy Lopez's Genealogy Links. See: Click on the following lists:
My Early New Mexican Ancestors
Santa Fe's First Families
New Mexico Settlers 1598-1680

Many of the early New Mexico settlers returned to Mexico when don Juan de Onate ordered that one foot be cut off of the Acoma Indian captives.

Also start looking at early records after 1591 of many of the northern states of Mexico including Texas and New Mexico.

For more information about the Tlaxcalans after 1591, see my Tlaxcalan webpage: [sorry about the misspelling but if I spell Tlascalteca correctly you will not be linked]
