Thank you very much for your kind comments to the upgrade of the www.moragahistory.com website. Very much appreciated.
We are still trying to work out that pesky “subscribe to our WordPress blog” issue. Hopefully, we will have an RSS feed or something else working soon.
We have also received some great photos and suggested updates on information on the site.
Gerry Hamor provided information and a photo on a plaque located north of Ventura, California recognizing the Rancho La Cañada Larga Mexican land-grant to Gabriel Moraga’s second wife, Joaquina Alvarado de Moraga. Gerry is a descendent of the Gabriel Moraga family line.

He also provided updated information on the connection between the Camarillo and Moraga family so check out the “San Francisco Branch” page.
Lance Beeson, a descendent of Joseph Juaquin Moraga, provided a photo of his Great-Great-Great-Grandmother Gomacinda Moraga, and information on the Facebook page, Los Arribeños de San Francisco, on the traditional “Fandango at the Moraga Adobe” in Northern California.

Lance also provided us with photos from his recent visit to Spain, including a visit to el Palacio – Casa de los Moraga, which was donated by Dona Marta de Moraga as a rectory to the Convent of Santa Maria de Jesus in Cáceres, Extremadura. The house, which is now a center of Extremaduran arts and crafts, can be seen today with an inscription outside reading “Casa de Nuestra Senora y Pobres Que Fue de los Moraga.”
