LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico Highlands University and the city of Las Vegas Museum want northern New Mexico residents to preserve their family documents.

The school’s library and the museum will host workshops next week in Las Vegas on ways families can save documents going back the Spanish colonial era to frontier days.

Officials say those documents tell the story of New Mexico and should be preserved.

Lynn Gates, head of Donnelly Library’s Archives and Cataloging Division, says it’s important that families care and record what they have so documents aren’t lost to their children and grandchildren.
