The Moriarty Historical Society and Museum competed for and has received a Phase I Grant from the New Mexico Historical Records Advisory Board to fund an "ORAL HISTORY COLLECTION" called "Cuentos de Abueletos". Under this program we will start interviewing some 25 of our "valley old timers". Interviews of their memories will be video recorded, taped and transcribed. We are also transcribing some 25 older tape recorded interviews from a donation. On the Newspaper project we made microfiche on some thirteen old newspapers published in thie Estancia valley between 1883 and 1950. Our volunteers continue working on the NAMESEARCH database that will be used by our patrons and researchers to locate articles in the old issues about the valley oldtimers and our relatives. We now have a temporary office and volunteers working in Willard, NM. We served 20,310 visitors during the year 2008. We have served 2,294 visitors thru the last of February, 2009.
