About Otero County GenWeb

Hello, and welcome to the Otero County GenWeb page. I am the new County Coordinator for Otero Company, as of May 15, 2009. As you may know, Otero County was formed from Bent County in 1889. If you cannot find your ancestors in Bent County after 1889, look for them in Otero County.

In 1996 the USGenWeb Project was begun, with web sites for each county in the United States. Otero County was begun at that time. Check out more of the history on the "Timeline" link.

While I am not the orginal coordinator for Otero County, I hope to add more information to make this web site even more informational for Otero County researchers. Be sure to check back from time to time to see what's new. And if you have information about your ancestors who resided here that you would like to contribute, be sure to contact me. You'll find my email address listed at the "Your Coordinator" link.
