6 The Civil War Veterans of San Diego: Including Citations to Genealogical Research Sources in San Diego, California
Barbara Palmer
2006, 8x11, paper, index, 350 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
A study was conducted to indentify Civil War veterans who migrated to San Diego, California, after the war. Nearly 2,000 veterans were identified, mostly Union veterans from the Northern States. For example: 281 were born in New York, 251 in Ohio, 172 in Pennsylvania, and 112 in Indiana. The book includes tombstone inscriptions and cemetery office records for the veterans and their wives, where available. Veteran intake records for the Heintzleman and Datus Coon G.A.R. posts give city or state of birth, Civil War unit and rank, length of service, where discharged, date of application to the San Diego G.A.R., age at time of application, occupation, death dates, and burial locations, where available. An all name index includes state of birth and state of the veteran's first enlistment (which often varied), allowing a determination of individual migration patterns over time. A guide to research in San Diego includes sources for military, church, census, vital, probate, cemetery, and other records. Cemetery histories and maps are also included.

We Remember... the stories of courage and heroism, triumph and tragedy, from the men and women who served their country during World War II from the Antelope Valley, California, Dayle L. DeBry


7 We Remember... the stories of courage and heroism, triumph and tragedy, from the men and women who served their country during World War II from the Antelope Valley, California
Dayle L. DeBry
(2004), 2008, 8x11, paper, 286 pp, Heritage Books
The Antelope Valley is located in the Southern California high desert, in the western portion of the Mojave Desert, approximately sixty miles northeast of Los Angeles. Military use of the northern Antelope Valley began in 1933 when Colonel Henry "Hap" Arnold, Commander of March Field at Riverside, transferred a small detachment of men to the area to set up a small bombing and gunnery range. The base was in full swing by the end of 1941 and known as Muroc Gunnery and Bombing Range (changed in the 1950s to Edwards Air Force Base in honor of Captain Glen W. Edwards). The Antelope Valley has been a world leader in aerospace since the 1950s, with Boeing, Northrop-Grumman, Rockwell, and Lockheed-Martin located in Palmdale, and NASA at Edwards Air Force Base. Within the pages of this book are the memories and stories of over one hundred and forty men and women who bravely served their country during World War II. Many of these veterans were born in the Antelope Valley, while some came after the war, employed or seeking jobs in the aerospace industry. Many of the stories include the thoughts and remembrances of the veterans or their families, spoken in the language that was acceptable during those times. Genealogical material such as the names of the veteran's parents; mother's maiden name; siblings; date of birth; date of marriage; and date of death (if applicable) has been provided for each veteran. This book, by no means, includes all the men and women who served from the Antelope Valley. The author will continue interviewing and collecting the stories from the veterans and their families for a future publication. Numerous photographs enhance the text.

9 Potters Field: The Chanate Historical Cemetery in Santa Rosa, California
Jeremy D. Nichols
2009, 8x11, paper, index, 174 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This book tells the story of the old Sonoma County Cemetery, a place of burial for those who had no family, friends, or money to provide for themselves. "Pauper" cemeteries like this one also served as one of few places where disadvantaged groups could bury their dead; in nineteenth-century California the Chinese were such a group. The history of the cemetery and its eventual abandonment, rediscovery, and restoration is followed by a biographical list of burials in the cemetery. This previously unpublished material is intended for genealogists seeking that distant relation who "went west" and vanished. It is bad enough that these people had to be buried in disgrace. If we can do nothing more for them, we should at least not ignore them. Visit the Chanate Historic Cemetery online at www.chanatecemetery.org

A Mexican-American Family of California: In the Service of Three Flags, John Schmal and Jennifer Vo


10 A Mexican-American Family of California: In the Service of Three Flags
John Schmal and Jennifer Vo
(2003), 2007, 5x8, paper, index, 252 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The eleventh-generation Californian Jennifer Vo and the historian John P. Schmal have collaborated in the production of this multi-generational epic about a pioneer California family. In 1781, Luis Quintero, a poor, middle-aged African-Mexican tailor from Sonora, Mexico, and his family (plus ten other families) founded El Pueblo de Nuestra la Reina de Los Angeles del Rio Porcioncula. The founding of Los Angeles, California, was a well-planned strategic move made by Spain to secure the northwestern border regions of its extensive American empire in the last half of the eighteenth century. The forty-four people comprising the Expedition of 1781 made a dangerous 960-mile journey through hostile Indian territory from Alamos, Sonora, to San Gabriel, California, is search of a better life. Little did they know that their small pueblo would one day become a major metropolitan area boasting a population of almost ten million souls. The authors discuss in some detail the story of one family's place in California history through twelve generations from Luis Quintero to the present generation.

Births, Deaths and Marriages on California's Mendocino Coast, Volume 8, 1970-1979, Mendocino Coast Genealogical Society


15 Births, Deaths and Marriages on California's Mendocino Coast, Volume 8, 1970-1979
Mendocino Coast Genealogical Society
2000, 8x11, paper, index, map, 485 pp, Heritage Books
This volume, the eighth in a series, chronicles the births' deaths and marriages from 1970 through 1979 in one of California's more remote and beautiful counties. The decade of the Seventies was both nationally and locally turbulent. The failed war in Vietnam, disillusionment with national leadership and a greater awareness of human impact on the environment were reflected in California's leadership in such things as banning the use of certain pesticides, requiring environmental reviews for timber harvests, public opposition to nuclear power and more. The population was slowly changing as ethnic divisions were erased through the blending of marriage. Adding to the scene was the gradual influx of greater numbers of Hispanic peoples, attracted by jobs in the fish processing industry. In the background an alternative lifestyle persisted, providing an edgy quality to life as evidenced by unusual art "happenings," reports of drug busts, and occasional reports of conflict with authority. Like the previous volumes, the text is divided into three alphabetized sections. All sections include the date of the newspaper in which the notice appears. Birth announcements give the infant's name, weight and date of birth, father's name and residence, and hospital. Death notices provide name of the deceased and sundry information such as: age, residence, occupation, names of family members, place of birth, and often place of burial. Marriages are listed alphabetically by groom's surname, and include names of bride, groom, parents, and minister, with place of residence. Divorces are also included in this section. Brides are listed in the index under their maiden names.

War with Mexico, 1846-1847: Doniphan's Expedition and the Conquest of New Mexico & California, William Elsey Connely


17 War with Mexico, 1846-1847: Doniphan's Expedition and the Conquest of New Mexico & California
William Elsey Connely
(1907), 2000, 5x8, paper, index, 688 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This engrossing historical narrative provides a detailed account of one of the most significant campaigns of the Mexican War. In June of 1846, under orders from Gen. Stephen Kearny, Col. Alexander Doniphan led the 1st Regiment of Missouri Mounted Volunteers on an extended 3,600 mile march into contested territory. This expedition took the Army of the West from Ft. Leavenworth to Santa Fe, and then through to Chihuahua, Saltillo and Matamoras, Mexico, with decisive American victories at the battles of Brazito and Sacramento. The campaign is described here in the first-hand account of John Taylor Hughes, a private in the 1st Regiment and the official historian of the campaign. Hughes' seminal text, Doniphan's Expedition (originally published in 1847), offers a day-by-day retelling of events on the march culminating in the Battle of Sacramento, in which Doniphan's 1,164 Missouri volunteers overcame some 4,000 Mexican regulars to occupy Chihuahua City. The narrative is not confined to military operations. Hughes discusses at great length the character of the New Mexico landscape, buffalo hunting, the everyday activities of the soldier in camp, the habits of the plains Indians and the interactions of American soldiers with the Mexican villagers. The Navajo and Apache were a constant presence during the expedition, posing a serious threat to the supply lines and messengers. By contrast, the Mexicans are most often portrayed as a nuisance, trespassing in camp and distracting the men from their duties. William Elsey Connelley has reprinted Hughes' work with a wealth of extra material. Connelley's 1907 edition features extensive historical and genealogical annotations, additional biographical sketches, fifty pages of regimental rosters, two large fold-out maps, eleven appendices and a comprehensive index. Biographical sketches are included for Col. Doniphan and other key figures in the campaign such as Gen. Kearny, Major-General Sterling Price and John T. Hughes, supplemented by Hughes' diary, Col. Doniphan's memoirs and the narrative of one Charles R. Morehead, a member of Doniphan's supply train. Appendices include an interview with Col. Doniphan, a short history of the Santa Fe Trail and several brief genealogical sketches of Mexican War veterans.
