Gurulé Families

Family #1 - these are the direct descendants of Santiago Gurulé and Elena Gallegos.

Families #2 through #14 - these are my "working" papers for other families that I've been able to trace back to the 1700's.....and no further. Many of the baptism and marriage records indicate some of these are "Genizaro" families. [Note from Angela]

"Genizaros" were captives of various tribal origins and had been ransomed from nomadic tribes and then placed as servants in the homes of settlers and missionaries. These Indians adopted Spanish surnames and customs, and built towns away from the Spanish settlements and the pueblo villages. By 1776, there were three prominent Genizaro communities in New Mexico: Analco in Santa Fe, Abiquiu, and Los Jarales near Belen.

Many of these families are believed to be the sons of Rosa and Bernardina who were Indian servants in the household of Antonio Gurulé and Antonia Quintana. If you have records to help trace any of these families further, please let Angela Lewis know.

These 14 families were chosen because they've hit the brick wall. Not available on the web site are literally hundreds of other families that I continue to work.
