This collection of documents represents the issues and events in and around the Pueblo de San Jose de Guadalupe and its adjacent mission, Santa Clara de Asis, 1841 - 1850. Many of the documents are business transactions such as bills of sale for goods and services, or contracts for the sale or lease of property. Also represented are proclamations by local authorities or petitions to local alcades or judges to resolve disputes. The documents in this collection are related to a larger collection found in the archival holdings at History San Jose.
Also included are materials from the same time period 1841 - 1850 from the Clyde Arbuckle Research Collection representing a wider range of California history.
We are working to provide transcription of documents in both Spanish and English.
