Priests who served at Mission San Carlos
I'm playing around with a timeline here, trying to lay out which priests were serving at Carmel (and sometimes Monterey) during the different stories Isabel Meadows tells. This is a quick and dirty timeline that no one should take as absolute; although the timeline allows for months, I did not always use the exact months of a priest's tenure, settling for the year dates that are often given in the materials I have at hand. Someday this might be a thing. Right now, it's a curiosity. I like the zoom in/out function, though I wish I could also print this out. Working on that.
Knowing which priest was where is important to many of Isabel's stories; it gives further context, and often the "padre" figures in the background of a story in significant ways, but Isabel sometimes leaves (or doesn't know) the padre's name. This will help me make those connections.
