Los Pobladores 200 is an Ancestral Heritage Association, founded in 1981 by Joseph Murillo Northrop (a founding family descendant) and his wife Marie E. Northrop. The primary goal was to locate and organize present day descendants of the original founding families of Los Angeles .Since then the organization has grown to 250 current members with descendants throughout the US. The name Los Pobladores 200 was used because it was organized on the 200th anniversary of the founding of Los Angeles, Sept. 4th 1981. Los Pobladores means “the towns’ people”. It’s main purpose is to perpetuate Los Angeles’ early history through its involvement and ongoing research in genealogy and family history. Our membership is comprised of direct descendants of the original 11 families and 4 escort soldiers (escolta). The original Founding Families names are listed on our Members page along with current descendants and membership quidelines.
