Fourth of the California missions is San Gabriel Arcángel, founded in 1771 and moved to its current location in 1776 because of flooding; once in the middle of the countryside, the site is now surrounded by the northern Los Angeles suburbs of San Gabriel, near Alhambra, Rosemead and South Pasadena.
The old highway past the church (Mission Road, originally El Camino Real) now cuts diagonally across the regular San Gabriel street grid, through a bustling, densely populated neighborhood home to a high percentage of Chinese Americans.
The frontage is bordered by examples of Californian desert plants including several huge yucca while in front is an large parking area with extensive lawns, a good place for a picnic.
San Juan Capistrano is a pleasant town along I-5, four miles from the Pacific Ocean and just about at the southern end of the Los Angeles suburbs.
The second mission northwards, San Luis Rey de Francia, sits at the side of the wide San Luis Rey river valley four miles east of Oceanside, in a rural area of cultivated fields and small villages.
The buildings are quite imposing, centred around a large church made in the traditional Spanish colonial style with a gleaming white appearance as if recently repainted.
All the complex is peaceful and evocative, despite the busy main road nearby, and the modern surroundings.
The next three missions northwards are Santa Ines, along Hwy 246 in Solvang, La Purísima Concepción just outside Lompoc (protected as a state historical monument), and San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, another compact site right in the middle of downtown San Luis Obispo.Roots Web Obituary Times Daily Obit Times Search Engine at Roots Web California Obituary Archives at USGen Web Obituary Indexes and Search Engines Newspaper Obituaries Search Engine at Ancestry Social Security Death Index Search Engine Cemetery Message [email protected] Forum Search the 1930 Census at Ancestry!Access the complete 1920 Census Index California Census Records California Genealogy Search California Genealogy Resources at Roots Web California Tombstone Transcription Project California USGen Web Archives California USGen Web Project California Vital Records Instant Death Record Search Mailing Lists for California Genealogy Obituary Indexes Today's Headline Obituaries Family Trees of Famous Folks Instant People Search Search National Phone Directories Census Search Engines Social Security Death Index Vital Records Search Bible Record Transcriptions Search for old Family Bibles Surname Search Portal Mormon Church Search Ellis Island Search More Passenger Lists UK Genealogy Search Engines US Genealogy Search Engines Roots Web Search Past Sheriffs of the United States Prison & Sex Offenders State Genealogy Resources Family Historian News Genealogy Links With this large collection of newspapers online, you can read and search newspapers dating back over 150 years!

The mission of the same name was the seventh to be established, in 1776, and has remained in active use ever since.
