Index to Articles found in the El Farol Newspaper 1905-1906

The Lincoln County New Mexico online archives contains pdf’s of all remaining copies of the El Farol Newspaper of Capitan NM, but doesn’t have an index to the newspaper. C. W.

He has shared this wonderful index with AccessGenealogy in hopes that it will reach a wider audience. Enjoy!
