Hi John, Can deduce from your posts you've been looking for a time. I have many cousins, all connected to Santa Barbara, San Buena Ventura, and San Luis Obispo. Would like to invite you to join our little page on facebook. The page is "Lopez Genealogy". Stop by and post @ your search. (We do not all live in the same place.) I know some of the names are familiar, and if I'm right, you have a link in the tree to "Los Californios". Please, don't be put off, we are all sharing abt 600 families from Alta California and Chumash Indians. I have been successful in locating 2 different family members that were adopted in the area, too.
