Erika and I are pleased to announce the first meeting of the Southern California chapter of the Nueva Galicia Genealogical Society.

The date for the first meeting is October 18, 2014, from 11 am until 2 pm.

We have considered the various locations of all the people who responded to the survey. We were fortunate enough to be offered a meeting location through the generosity of the Santa Ana Public Library's History Room.

If you already responded to the survey, you should have received a tentative agenda and flyer via email. If you did not receive the email, it may be in your spam folder, or you can email us at, and we will send it to you.

If you did not fill out the survey and if you are interested in attending, please email us at and we will send you the agenda and the meeting flyer for your perusal. If you cannot open the attachments, please let us know.

**Please do RSVP to to let us know if you will be attending-- we want to prepare the room to accommodate everyone.**

Feel free to bring your family trees, laptops, and documents that you wish to share or have questions about. There is limited seating, but we will have a chance to meet others and perhaps find some relatives! Bring your questions as well-- let's share in the wealth of knowledge and experience regarding genealogy.

We will take a break at an appropriate time during the meeting. You are permitted to bring bottled water with you, but we are not allowed to eat in the History Room. However, if you wish to bring a lunch or snacks with you, you are welcome to eat outside the library. The break may not be long enough for lunch at a restaurant, so please plan accordingly.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at .

Jose de Jesus Legaspi

This sounds terrific. It will be great to attend. I will check my schedule and RSVP. Can you tell me how long as the group been together? Any results from the effort? I would be very interested. I have been doing quite a bit of work on this subject matter, especially as it relates to my family name, Legaspi, which has been in area since the early 1600s. I have been able to piece together quite a few branches with noticeable info which has not been confirmed as yet. Also, about Nochistlan and its history relevance to the Nueva Galicia and the subsequent evolution of the Altos de Jalisco.
