Forum Bulletin - #1

Although some Californians may proclaim that they are the 4th or 5th generation of their family to live in this fair state, if each of us goes back far enough, one of our progenitors was the first of us to step on California soil. In a larger sense, we Californians are either immigrants or their children - whether our antecedents crossed the Berring land bridge or came by Amtrak. Nor have we all arrived here legally. Some of us might find a bit of irony in the fact that our forebearers may have been Yankee sailors who jumped ship when they reached the California coast, and became legal Mexican citizens only by marrying Caifornio women. From history's perspective when we search out our family roots, we often learn that despite differences in perhaps race, ethnicity or culture, we have a lot in common with others who sought a new home or life west of the Sierra crest. The mission of the California History Forum is to help build a better community by sharing this - our common history.
