I agree....
by: Anne Wallace

Thank you for your post. How easily us whites seem to forget who really were the "founding fathers" of this nation. To bad they did not learn their ways. The US and our earth would all be in better shape.

GENTE DE ESPANA
by: Susie M.

Have I missed something? When did Spaniards (as in "Spanish Land Grants") become non-Caucasians? While it is true that Early California settlers included a variety of ethnicities (including mestizos and the multiracial descendants of Caribbean peoples), the Spaniards who came to California from Spain were largely European.

Ventura County Spanish Land Grant History
by: Russell

I am a history buff and growing up in Ventura County from 1950 to 1966 I remember many of the old Ranchos in the County.

You can find a great deal of history on the internet. You need to research the old names. Camarillo, Bard, Olivas, Canada Larga, Taylor, Hoffman, Sespi, Lewis and others because they will lead you to the history of Ventura County and Southern California.

My next step is to research for more native history of the tribs and people of the region and the Channel Islands.

In truth, old Southern California (Alta California) was beautiful befor growth and development took over.
