NGGS Conference Facebook page
I've attached a link to the Nueva Galicia Genealogical Society's Facebook Page where I've uploaded photographs of our 2012 Conference held in Sacramento, California on Saturday May 12th.
The State Archives were absolutely beautiful. The State Archivist was very excited to host their first Genealogical Society Conference ever. They were extremely warm and gracious. The conference included two tours of the State Archives/facilities. They setup several displays throughout the facility specifically for our visit. Included were the muster rolls for the civil war that included the Spanish and the Mexicans that fought in the Civil War. Also included were land grants of the early Spanish Californios.
Our current President Robert Hernandez did a wonderful job of organizing and hosting this event. The finale was a presentation by the Trio Los Zafiros. They played beautifully and described some of the early Mexican music such as boleros and rancheras.
Our presenter, including our own Nuestros Ranchos Claudia Casillas made her presentation on the Dispensas of Guadalajara. Claudia, thank you for agreeing to present at our conference, it was a pleasure meeting you. We also presented her with a certificate from our other fearless leader, Jospeh Puentes of Nuestros Ranchos for her hard work and generous contribution of the Dispensas Blog.
The finale was dinner across the street at Vallejo's Mexican Restaurant where the Zafiros played to our hearts content, we all sang our hearts out and enjoyed the no host buffet dinner.
Thank you Robert and thank you all who made this event another success.
