I have been interested in family history since childhood.I wanted to know who it was in the old photos,what their names were and where we came from.Once the computer came along it got so much easier to do family history.Then I discovered a whole family of cousins on my dads side I never got to meet as a rootless child.It all went from there.

I love doing research,photography,visiting the Spanish Missions of northern and central California and looking for old graves.Trying to discover the lost history of the Calforniaos.They were more than dark eyed senoritas and gambling Dons.Their history has been simplified and reduced to the point of caricature.And sadly there graves have been lost,destroyed or reduced to token monuments.And that has cost California a big piece of it’s important history.Maybe this can be my-Libro de Difuntos.Book of the dead.
