Series I. Pinedo Family Life, Bulk, 1842-1901 1826-1901 (bulk 1842-1901)

Scope and Content

This series documents the day-to-day lives of the Pinedo family for most of the nineteenth century. The series includes devotional books, reproductions of El Cocinero Español by Encarnación Pinedo, photographs, handwritten personal reminiscences, copies of marriage and baptism records, property records, and newspaper clippings. The handwritten accounts of Encarnación Pinedo’s early life reflect what daily life was like in Mission Santa Clara prior to the secularization of the California missions.

The material in this series is written in English, Castilian Spanish, and Latin.
