The presentations covered the settlement of New Mexico from 1598 until the Statehood period (1912). The Archdiocese also announced that the papers will be compiled as a book which will be released in the spring of 1998, near the actual 400th anniversay date of Don Juan de Onate's original settlement in the spring of 1598.
