Index to Vital Data in Local Newspapers of Sonoma County, California, Volume 7: 1904-1906


Local newspapers furnish a wealth of genealogical data and often help fill in the gaps in official records. The names contained in this index are primarily residents of Sonoma County, but some residents of the surrounding counties - Marin, Napa, Solano, Lake and Mendocino - can also be found within these pages. Newspapers indexed include: Analy Standard, Cloverdale Reveille, Healdsburg Enterprise, Healdsburg Tribune, Petaluma Courier (also issued as Petaluma Daily Courier), Petaluma Argus, Press Democrat, Santa Rosa Daily Republican (also issued as Daily Republican and Santa Rosa Republican), Sebastopol Times, Sonoma Index Tribune, Sotoyome Sun, Daily Republican, Petaluma Daily Courier, and Russian River Advertiser.

This seventh volume in the series contains more than 18,000 entries in alphabetical table format. Entries include: surname, given name, type of entry (birth, death, marriage, probate, or miscellaneous entry as gleaned from articles appearing in newspaper supplements), name of newspaper, date of article, page and column number, and comments. Surname entries often include alternative spellings. Given Name entries may include the relationship to the individual listed. Comments furnish, as available, cemetery names, locations mentioned in an article, special circumstances, and other supplemental data. A list of Sonoma County cemeteries, a map of the county, and a list of Sonoma place names enhance this valuable resource.
