Hi, I'm Tony Leon - thanks for stopping by! This web site is an attempt to briefly share information about my family roots as a 9th generation Angelino. In 2004 I finally became interested in learning about my heritage, and since then I've discovered a lot about Los Angeles history as a descendant of an original settler of the city, founded in 1781. It has been a labor of love unlocking doors to the past and I hope you will be inspired by your visit.


I dedicate this site to my cousin Felix who tried to get me involved with this back in 1981 during LA's bicentennial year, to my children Anthony and Alexandra, to my wife Teresa for indulging me in my endeavor of exploring my roots, and to the local native Americans who once enjoyed the freedom and liberties we all take for granted today.
