From: Marcela Alvizouri

Estoy buscando información sobre las misiones
dominicas de Baja California. ¿Existen fuentes
etnohistoricas sobre la distribución espacial del
convento dominico en esta zona en especial o en
general para toda la orden?. Cualquier información
sobre el tema es bien recibida.

I´m searching information about Dominique missions in
Baja California. Are there etnohistorical documents
about the spatial distribution of the convent in this
area specially or for the whole order? Any information
about this topic is welcome.

Thank you.

SASIG Ed. Reply -- The few web pages noted below are
obvious sources for general information. SASIG readers
with documentary sources and ethnohistoric knowledge
should contact /
so this topic may be expanded.

On the SWA Mexico page, SWA links to
"Las Misiones en Baja California"

Three books I have found useful for an overview of all the missions of Baja Cal;ifornia are: Robertson, Tomas, _Baja California and its Missions_, La Siesta Press (Box 406, Glendale, CA 91209) 1978 Mathes, Dr. W. Michael, _Las Misiones de Baja California /The Missions of Baja California, 1683-1849, La Paz, BCS: Editorial Aristos, S.A. de C.V. (Heroes de la Independencia 945 Norte), 1977 Francez, Padre James Donald, _The Lost Treasures of Baja California/Los Tesoros Perdidos de la Baja California, 1697-1997_. Black Forrest Press, Box 521 , Chula Vista, CA 91910 tel. 619-656-8048), 1996. All three deal with the distribution and the remains of Dominican missions and conventos in the Baja California (as well as with Franciscan and Jesuit establishments). I'm sure none of these is very easy to find, but that shouldn't amaze anyone. Hope this helps, Jim Griffith
