I'm new to researching obituaries. I need help finding obituaries for my relatives who all lived in Portales. I have pictures of all of their gravestone markers in the Portales Cemetery and would love to read more about their lives. Any help or leads would be appreciated!

Obituaries back to 2006 can be found at Portales News-Tribune's web site.

These obituaries will be harder to find because of their age.
The University of New Mexico, has a listing of historical newspapers in their library at

I didn't read through all the entires (because the font is so small) but click on each one, read the details and you can decide which ones you want. Successful Searching!
