History program at Jemez Springs Library

Jemez Springs Public Library presents “Telling Our Stories,” an Interactive Program about Jemez Valley History, held on May 20, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., in the Conference Room. The program is an opportunity for current and former residents—and anyone else who is interested—to contribute to and learn more about local history. Participants may choose from a variety of activities, including a review of the Jemez Valley History website, making a video of personal stories, scanning and sharing historic photos, participating in a memoir exercise, visiting with a genealogist, and visiting with a New Mexico author who has published her own memoir.

Judith Isaacs, volunteer coordinator of the Jemez Valley History project, has been working with other volunteers and library staff to create a website sponsored by the library. “We would like to record for future generations as many stories as we can about the pioneers who settled here and their descendants,” she said. “To see what has been posted to date, go to You will find information on land grants, historic structures, early pioneer families, logging, mining, and much more. We need help from the community to create a complete record.”

For more information, call Judith Isaacs at 575-829-3382, or Jemez Springs Public Library, at 575-829-9155.
