The next occurrence of this event:

Nicole Sinclair’s family always believed they had a European background, but when she discovers DNA results that are far different, she enlists the help of her great-grandmother to investigate their roots. Slowly the two women unravel the mysteries of their 250-year family tree, tracing their Californio ancestors through the generations to the Gold Rush. “In This Land of Plenty” is a meticulously researched and beautifully written historical fiction family saga that introduces the complex social issues that populate California's rich history while drawing a direct line to today's residents.
