From Mexico to California: A Case Study of the Moraga Family

Presenter: Susan Kay Skilton, AG®


The stories of the early settlers from Mexico in Alta California (Californios) reflect a rapidly changing environment. Records for the Moraga family document their successes, failures, and struggles as the landscape changed to accommodate the gold rush settlers and the new U.S. government. Documents for this family and for other Californios families are rich in scope and detail.
