> I have just been informed that about 20 boxes of old San Diego
>County probate, court cases, and other legal records from the
>1850's have been pulled from storage and sent to the San Diego
>Superior Court. The Superior Court finds them of little or no
>interest and may order them destroyed. These records should be
>preserved and available to researchers as many if not most per-
>tain to our ancestors. We should strongly request that all of
>these records be given into the care of a suitable
>historical/heritage organization for safekeeping.
> Recently, these records were used to research the Marron Adobe,
>and over 100 pages of court testimony were found with details of
>life in early California.
> A letter requesting that these records be maintained pending
>finding a proper repository should be written to:
> Chuck Freeman
> Administrative Services
> San Diego Superior Court
> P.O. Box 122724
> San Diego, CA 92112
> Mr. Freeman is favorable, but needs support to convince the
>Judges. Statewide support would be even more convincing.
> My letter is on its way!
> Maurice Bandy, President, Los Californianos
