JSPL News:
 
Jemez Springs Public Library presents “Telling Our Stories: An Interactive Program about Jemez Valley History” 1-3 p.m., Saturday, May 20, in the Conference Room at the library.
 
The program is an opportunity for current and former residents – and anyone else 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, make a video of personal stories, scan and share historic photos, participate in a memoir exercise, visit with a genealogist, and visit 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 non-profit 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 www.jemezvalleyhistory.org. You will find information on land grants, historic structures, early pioneer families, logging, mining, and much more.”
 
“We know we have just scratched the surface,” Isaacs added. “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, 575.829.9155. The library is in the Village Plaza in Jemez Springs.
