Chaves County, NM Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce Records

Chaves County vital recordsThe Chaves County seat, the town of Roswell, is perhaps the most famous town in New Mexico due to the much publicized UFO controversy that occurred in the late 1940s. Roswell still benefits from the notoriety and brings in a large amount of revenue from tourists and UFO enthusiasts to this day. Roswell is home to the office of the County Clerk, the primary recorder of public documents, such as property and marriage records, as well as others. Since many older records were maintained originally by local Catholic churches, the New Mexico Genealogical Society provides a listing of churches within Chaves County and the records that are available at each. Officially, birth and death records on file with the NM Department of Health do not become open to the public until they are 100 years of age or older.
