• Descendants and Ancestors, together they are the fabric of Genealogy and Family Tree Research.  Many of the historical aspects of our ancestry are the places and records that describe them in a historical context.  On our California Genealogy pages we focus on providing specific information pertaining to the immigration and settlement activity that took place.  We examine historical information that might exist within Church or Probate Records.  Land and tax information from California county courthouses may also prove to be valuable sources to support your family tree. Finally, most of our ancestors may have left final notices in the cemeteries, wills, newspapers, or other record repositories that are available on the Internet now. 

    We are taking an additional step to assist you in your Family Tree efforts by providing focused links, digital records, and other pertinent information using a regional underpinning methodology and one other important tool, distance digital communication tools. We have Galleries that include historical images and records.  Forums to collaborate with others that share an interest in the same area, culture, or maybe even the same ancestral family name. We are providing this site to allow interaction with others, free of charge, to learn about tools, to help each other, or even to understand your Ancestry DNA, and get the most out of the community.

    The content we provide begins with the general ancestry, history, and genealogy information. Then we add our special focus which is towards European immigration, pioneers, exploration, and settlement activity.  Nothing would be complete if we didn't add a bit more specialty information regarding immigrants and their historical achievements they made while founding various parts of America.

    Welcome! We are presenting quality information and a collaborative environment that will help you discover your family history. Information for how you can contribute is here. I hope you will consider becoming a member which lets you generate topics and share on Facebook to connect with others however, feel free to browse the site. If you have questions, send a message by going to the about us page.
