The diocese announced Thursday it was handing over the names to the New Mexico attorney general's office two months about the department asked all Roman Catholic church officials for files.

Officials say the alleged abuse cases took place from the 1950s to 2000.

The New Mexico attorney general's office said in September it wanted Roman Catholic church officials around the state to allow it to review personnel records for any material that might be related to past or present allegations of sexual abuse.

The Santa Fe Archdiocese last year published a list of 74 clergy members who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing children in New Mexico.
