La Baja California
Very soon after the conquest of Mexico the attention of Cortez was attracted by certain stories told by some of the conquered tribes regarding a mysterious but wonderful country, lying far to the northwestward. This land they called Ciguatan, or The Realm of Women; and they declared that it abounded in gold, in pearls, rubies, garnets, turquoises, and many other products, rich and precious.

We are also the hosts of California Gold Rush Most Wanted, if you have a ancestor lost in California during the time of the Goldrush, 1840s-1880s, you will want to make a "brick-wall" post here.
