I am an Argentinean. My great great grandmother, María Concepción Castro Peralta, was born in the San Francisco Bay area in 1835. I can’t afford a membership but I thought I could publish a query in your Web site. María's father was Guillermo Castro Garcia and her mother María Luisa Peralta Alviso.

James Stokes is my 7th great grandfather and I have lost most of our history info, since my father's passing.  Does anyone have a picture of James or Maria Stokes and their parents' information?  I believe James Stokes married the widow Maria Josepha Soto in 1844.  I am descended from their son William.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.  [Dayna Gough (non-member), Shasta Lake, Calif.]
