Hi Dana,
My sister is back in New Mexico this week and is going to the historical Society to look up some information.

The last time I went I feel very confident that my genealogy ties are to a JOSEFA ONTIVERAS BUSTOS who came from Mexico City area in the recolonization.

She was very young and came up with her Uncle and Aunt to settle in Santa Cruz area. From what I understand she had some children but I never found any documentation that she married so the the children took her name. That lineage goes back a long way.

My immediate grandfather was born in Santa Cruz NM (Above Santa Fe by Chimayo) and he then settled in a little village of ROCIADA inbetween Mora and Las Vegas NM. A most beautiful area.

Best of luck to you on this journey into your history. I will review my notes to see if I see a connection. Do you have the website for the NM historical information?
