Question about Researching in a Parish

Hello all,

way to approach the subject?

Hi group!

Here is an update on the upcoming Southern California Ranchos
Meeting. A kind member of the Ranchos group, Olivia Jaurequi-Reyes,
has offered the use of her home as a meeting place. The advantage of
this is that we can have a calm, comfortable atmosphere to share our
genealogies and ideas. I'd like to thank Olivia for her generosity.
