Abstract: Sierra County and New Mexico share similar settlement patterns, however they are ethnically dissimilar in the present day. Using the methodology of surname analysis applied to historic census data, this thesis explores Sierra County and New Mexico in 1870 and 1930 to illustrate the differences between the past and the present. Results are displayed in tables and maps and show the ethnic differences between the counties in New Mexico and the precincts in Sierra County.
