Newspaper Extracts from The Marin Journal, Sausalito News, Marin County Tocsin, San Rafael, Marin County, California, 1897 to 1898


Looking for someone in the 1890s in Marin County? Unfortunately, the 1890 Census that included information on births, marriages, and deaths was lost. Fortunately for researchers, this series provides a wealth of information to fill this gap, but these volumes offer more than vital statistics! Newspaper abstracts are an excellent resource for genealogists and historians. In addition to the abundance of names and relationships, news articles tell us a lot about the customs, lifestyles, and priorities of this time period. Voter lists, orphan records, lists of letters, and notes of when people living out of state visited their relatives add to the value of this work. A full-name index is included to facilitate research.
