To find cemetery records for ''New Mexico' in the FamilySearch Catalog follow these steps:<br>
Cemetery records, such as tombstone and [[Sexton Records|sexton’s records]], have value in that they may give birth and death dates, age at death, name of spouse and children, a maiden name or, occasionally, a birthplace. Tombstones may have symbols or insignias indicating military service and social or religious affiliations. It is important to look at surrounding tombstones because family members may also be buried nearby.
