Genealogy and History for the San Francisco Bay Area

If you happen to have family members from the San Francisco Bay area, you should know about sfgenealogy.com This extremely useful Website is sponsored in part by the California Genealogical Society and Library. The California Genealogical Society also has a blog.

Here is some of the content added to sfgenealogy.com just in the last two or three days:

29 January: San Francisco: Central Methodist Episcopal Church directory, 1910 by Nancy Pratt-Melton
28 January: Marin County: Kentfield School Graduates, 1913 by Cathy Gowdy
28 January: Marin County: Marin County Grammar School Graduates, 1913 by Cathy Gowdy
28 January: Marin County: St. Raphael’s Grammar School, 1908-11 by Carolyn Schwab
28 January: Marin County: San Rafael High School graduates, 1908-11 by Carolyn Schwab
28 January: Marin County: Dominican College graduates, 1890, 1892, 1895-98, 1910-11 by Carolyn Schwab

The list of recent additions is impressive. Their Research Tools are very interesting and useful, including archaic medical terms, birthday calculators, cost of living calculators, and other links to useful sites.

In doing research on old California families, I have found this site to be very helpful in providing links to original documents and indexes.

  1. Thank you for the nice review!

    We also just recently put a large mortuary database online, complete with an index and documents images, that includes over 45,000 individuals.

    ALso, we have a few resources for California in general, including birth and death indexes.

    Although most of the tools you listed are from other websites, we do have one we created ourselves, youFocus, which allows someone to search easily for names on the bigger search engines like Google.

    Once again, thank you for the nice review.
