Volume VIII is a continuation of the journey of the Maldonado family to the Kingdom of New Mexico. It documents the Maldonado descendants of Juan López de Godoy and Ynés Lucero y González Jaramillo through their son Maese de Campo (“Commanding General”) Pedro Lucero de Godoy and his two wives, Petronila de Zamora and Francisca Gómez Robledo, both pioneering New Mexico families. This includes not only their direct line of descent, but also cousins, uncles, aunts, and in-laws. The Maldonado database has more than 5,800 names with many of them represented here. The time period is generally from 1598 through the nineteenth century for most names, though the direct line continues to the present. Pedro Lucero de Godoy is the ancestor of many people living in New Mexico today. In this volume his other descendants can trace their connections to cousins from this extended Maldonado family. Juan López de Godoy and Ynés Lucero y González Jaramillo are my tenth great-grandparents. Pedro Lucero de Godoy and Petronila de Zamora are my ninth great-grandparents. Petronila de Zamora is also my ninth great-grandaunt because her parents, Bartolomé de Montoya and María de Zamora, are my double tenth great-grandparents. Don Pedro’s second wife, doña Francisca Gómez Robledo, whom he married following the death of Petronila de Zamora, is my ninth great-grandmother by virtue of her marriage to Pedro Lucero de Godoy; but, she is also my first cousin ten times removed, the great-granddaughter of my eleventh great-grandparents Pedro Robledo and Catalina López.
