A twenty-two roll microfilm edition of the Spanish Archives of New
Mexico (1621-1821) has been published under the sponsorship of the
National Historical Publications Commission, thus making accessible
to scholars source material having a significant relevance to the Amer-
ican Southwest. The Archives contain all of the extant official records
in the custody of the state for this two-hundred-year period of Spanish
sovereignty over New Mexico, terminating with the Mexican War of
Independence and the Treaty of C6rdova in 1821. Excluded are the
official land grant records which are in the custody of the Bureau of
Land Management of the United States Department of the Interior.
The Archives are microfilmed chronologically in three groups. The
calendar for each roll is reproduced at the beginning of the first roll,
and documents are located by the frame number for the first page of

Mexico (1914). Rearranged and numbered in chronological order,
the documents also retain the Twitchell inventory number. Roll 22,
entitled "Miscellaneous Spanish Archives of New Mexico," consists
of the official documents in special collections of the State Records
Center and the Zimmerman Library of the University of New Mexico
that were not listed by Twitchell. Roll 22 contains the official Orders
