SAN DIEGO'S HISTORIC PLACES: Mexican Period/ Californios

As a member of the Early San Diego Regional History Collaborative, I'm excited to see this episode tonight!

As a language teacher, I'm curious about the use of "the Silvas" to refer to members of the Silvas family. I think it should say "the Silvases" or "the Silvas family" instead. I know Abel Silvas, and calling his family the Silvas sounds like their name is Silva. It's not. it's Silvas. In Spanish it would be "los Silvas" or "la familia Silvas." It's like calling my family "the Fox" instead of "the Foxes."

Sorry if that seems like nitpicking. ; )

I hope you'll do many more episodes of the early history of our region, including the many fascinating people and places prior to the arrival of the various European groups (including my own). THANK YOU!!
