Open the 2018 Year by Joining GSHA-SC General Meeting on February 3, 2018
Anthony Ray, a descendant of the original Berryessa colonist who came to Alta California with the de Anza party in 1776, will present a brief history of the Berryessas beginning with the de Anza expedition and ending in the early twentieth century. He will review Berryessa military involvement, ranchos, their religious and social involvements, the murder of Berryessa family members in the 1850s, and how the family settled into American culture by the late nineteenth century. Anthony will discuss the records that he has researched which include manuscript collections, church records, newspapers, vital records and more, and how he incorporated them into his history of the Berryessas.
