Research at the Archive
Membership gives you access to copies of the registers in which the sacraments of baptism, marriage, and burial were recorded at the California Missions, copies of Padrones or censuses we have available, and various other resources.
Unfortunately, we do not have the staffing or expertise to be able to offer assistance with genealogical research or translation of the sources.

SBMAL is currently closed to the public, and research request forms have been temporarily disabled at this time. Any research requests received after December 22 will be delayed.
We are working to return to normal operations as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this closure may cause.
