Dear Manager / Historian[edit]

Did the Velarde's ever have a Spanish Land Grant, either in Colton or San Bernardino? Our family history suggest that we did.

Perhaps there other historical documents available in Spain or elswhere that validates the Velarde's history and contribution.

Please inform me as to where I can obtain such documentation.

Thank you,

Ron Velarde,

Grandson of Pablo Velarde, Great Grandson of Ramon Velarde

Dear Manager / Historian

I was wondering if you could please tell(add in article too) how San Bernardino got its name.

                            Can you inform me when you do?   Thanks
                                                                      ~Mfcv

facts?[edit]

In 1866, militia forces from San Bernardino killed Serrano men, women, and children in a 32-day campaign. Yuhaviatam tribal leader Santos Manuel (from whom the name "San Manuel comes)led the remaining Yuhaviatam from the mountains to valley floor.

The typo concerns me: this purported fact is not in the timeline article and en.wikipedia.org appears to have no article on Santos Manuel.

In 1866, unrest came to the area as militia forces from San Bernardino killed Serrano men, women, and children in a 32-day campaign. Yuhaviatam tribal leader Santos Manuel safely led the remaining Yuhaviatam from their ancient homelands in the mountains to valley floor.

In 1891 with passage of the Act for Relief for Mission Indians the San Manuel reservation was established and recognized as a sovereign nation with the right of self-government. The San Manuel reservation was named in honor of its courageous leader, Santos Manuel, and henceforth the tribe was recognized as the San Manuel Band of Serrano Mission Indians.
