This is a git repository of the source files for the book “Spanish and Indian place names of California: Their Meaning and Their Romance” by Nellie Van de Grift Sanchez. It is a Project Gutenberg book, now on Github. https://www.GITenberg.org/
Project Gutenberg is a project to collect and archive public domain texts and is the source of this book. Project Gutenberg (PG) is a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works, to “encourage the creation and distribution of eBooks”. It was founded in 1971 by Michael S. Hart and is the oldest digital library. Most of the items in its collection are the full texts of public domain books. The project tries to make these as free as possible, in long-lasting, open formats that can be used on almost any computer. As of July 2012, Project Gutenberg claimed over 40,000 items in its collection.
