OF LOS CALIFORNIANOS
Meetings are held in January, April, and October at historic areas throughout California. These are usually scheduled for the weekend of the fourth Sunday of the month. There is a registration fee to participate in any of the Friday through Sunday activities. Be sure to check the registration form for details. At each meeting, the Thomas W. Temple, II abstracts of mission records, the Mutnick genealogical charts, the Vincent Gallagher family group sheets,
various Californio family histories and genealogical charts, among other materials, are available for genealogical and historical research at no charge for members. There is a nominal charge of $5 a weekend for nonmembers (in addition to the meeting registration fee) to use this “traveling library,” which is payable in the library room.
The quarterly meetings also provide an opportunity for members, prospective members, and guests to socialize at the Friday afternoon and evening Hospitality Room.
Californio music and, often, Californio dances and period attire, are a part of this festive occasion. Other weekend activities are guided tours to local historic sites such as adobes and missions and field trips to other local points of interest. The Saturday evening dinner and Sunday morning brunch include entertaining programs of cultural and historical interest and further opportunities to meet and visit with primos ("cousins") and friends.
