|Bio and Links|
I first caught the "genealogy bug" at age 13 and have been searching for and finding my early Californio ancestors for the past 52 years! I am a direct descendant of some who came as early as 1769 with Portola, and of many of the 240 who came with Juan Bautista de Anza to settle California in 1775-76...and of those who arrived a bit later with Rivera in 1781.|
I've also discovered my New Mexico ancestors, those near Santa Fe and on the San Ildefonso Indian Reservation...and I'm having a wonderful time with this research!
Now that my grandsons are interested in learning of their ancestors we're adding families who arrived in CA for the Gold Rush!
My family knows I'm obsessed and addicted
... I just call it my passion!
NOTE: Recently I've received several "edits" suggesting changes. I try to use every historical record available when creating my memorial pages but some things slip past me.
There are many situations here on Find A Grave, now owned by Ancestry.com that make it impossible to accurately identify the early California Hispanic folks, specifically the women.
Listing and identifying the actual locations of many births and deaths is also difficult since so many of our families began here in California in 1769, or earlier for our Native American families. There is no way to enter that info in the fields provided. California can only be entered as part of The United States ... and for many of our families this is just not historically correct.
I do what I can to make things as clear as possible.
Please contact me at either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

|Veronica Jordan||Julia Larios Gonzales|
Can you tell me where you got her burial information? Did it by chance list a cause of death or birth date?
Thank you for your help and thank you so much for creating her memorial.
|Frosty||Juan Venacio Galindo 1773-1818|
Would you happen to know what Native American ancestry Juan had? I've read he was a Mestizo, but don't know a tribe. Do you know?

|Diane Reich||Helen S Larios|
In Woodlawn cem in Colma CA, I have listed Helen, Henry F & Harriet Larios. I have found info on Ancestry Funeral Records San Francisco CA. I am not related just trying to complete memorials. Let me know if you would like me to transfer memorials to you. Diane. Merry Christmas to you!
I cannot link memorials that you manage. You will have to link them yourself.
Sorry if I mislead you.

Be glad to erase the duplicate & did so. I did search, but sometimes, for whatever reason, a name will not show up. It probably is a miracle it works as well as it does considering all the moving parts! I would appreciate it if you added the SAR Patriot # information. I am trying to add those when I come across them (and for DAR when appropriate) to add to helping others...see below
My husband is a Carrillo-Castro-Romero-Lugo, etc. descendiente.
Jose Mariano Castro is listed as a Patriot in the NASSR Patriot and Graves Records. He served as a soldier, one of Spain's California patriots in its 1779-1783 War with England during the American Revolution, Part 2. Granville W. And Nancy C. Hough. 1999 His Ancestor Patriot # is P-130258.
