Pueblo of San Jose 1841 – 1850

This collection includes documents pertaining to the Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe and its adjacent mission, Santa Clara de Asis, 1841 - 1850.

About the Collection

Much of the material documents business transactions such as bills of sale for goods and services, and 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 José.

We are working to provide transcription of documents in both Spanish and English.
