Located in the southeast corner of New Mexico, Lea County actually borders twice as many counties in Texas than those in its own state. The Lea County Clerk's office
is situated in the county courthouse at 100 N Main Street in the county seat of Lovington, NM. The office serves as the official recorder for the county and collects such records as property, military service, marriage, tax, and several other types. All records that are submitted to the office automatically become part of the public record and are available for viewing. A few Catholic churches
also have various records on file with limited dates of availability. Often in New Mexico, churches would keep their own records in addition to, or instead of local government agencies. The New Mexico Genealogical Society also operates a Lea County Genealogy Links
page on their blog detailing a number of research options for the area.
