Wrap up for Hispanic Research Day San Diego

The San Diego Hispanic Saturday group met at 1pm on 17 June 2017 at the San Diego Central Library. We had 13 in attendance. Ceasar Castro informed the group about that the Genealogical Hispanic Society of America annual conference is in California this year. The conference will be held during 18-20 August 2017. The information on the conference and on the GSHA organization was given to each attendee.

Then Ceasar Castro gave a presentation on the California Spanish census of 1790. He first covered some of the early California history. Most of the early California history was taken from Harry Crosby’s book Antigua California. Ceasar then discussed the 1790 California census. A lot of that information came from William Marvin Mason’s book The Census of 1790.

The meeting ended with our normal round table discussion where everyone talked about the status of their family genealogy research.
