Cemeteries of Sonoma County, California: A History and Guide, Jeremy Dwight Nichols


1 Cemeteries of Sonoma County, California: A History and Guide
Jeremy Dwight Nichols
(2002), 2008, 8½x11, paper, index, 146 pp, Heritage Books
The primary purpose of this book is to tell the story of the cemeteries in Sonoma County, California, and to enable genealogists, historians, and other researchers to locate those cemeteries. This information was compiled from library references, interviews with local residents, and most importantly, from a personal visit to each cemetery. Visiting each cemetery confirmed its actual location and existence, and gave the author an opportunity to talk to local residents about its history. Tombstone inscriptions, where provided, are verbatim copies. All cemeteries in any published list of Sonoma County cemeteries are addressed in this book. About half of the cemeteries are given full write-ups, with history, description, references, a map and directions. There is a section on Native American burial grounds, legal aspects of cemeteries, nonexistent cemeteries, a glossary, bibliography, and fullname index of people mentioned in each cemetery write-up. This book is a history and guide to the cemeteries of Sonoma County, California, not an index of burials in those cemeteries.

2 The 1930 School Census of Sonoma County, California
Sonoma County Genealogical Soc
2004, 8½x11, paper, alpha., 2 vols., 712 pp, Heritage Books
The Statutes of California, 1929, required every elementary school district in the state to take a school census of all minors under the age of 18 during the first full week of October 1930, regardless of whether they were in school or not, and every three years thereafter. School registrars were required to file their reports with the county superintendent of schools, and their compliance was assured by withholding funds from schools that did not comply. Volunteers from the Sonoma County Genealogical Society undertook the task of extracting as much information as possible from these records to create this extensive two-volume set. To augment the records and facilitate research, a handy guide to reading the set of tables, complete with a list of district/school codes that include the townships and nearest town or area; codes for private schools, business schools, colleges, and out-of-town schools; codes for birthplace and citizenship; a map of Sonoma County Townships, circa 1896-1897; and an appendix devoted to demographics have been included. Part One includes: name, sex, date and place of birth, race, school, grade, reason (if not in school), residence, living with whom, father's given name, and mother's given name. Part Two includes: name, living parent, father's birthplace and citizenship, mother's birthplace and citizenship, person who signed registration and their relationship, and elementary school district.

3 Early School Attendance Records of Sonoma County, California, Beginning 1858
Sonoma County Genealogical Society
2004, 8½x11, alphabetical, 496 pp, Heritage Books
This volume contains school attendance records beginning in 1858 and generally ranging to the 1920s, with a few beyond that date. For all students recorded, it contains the name of student, school attended, date of first and last school record, and in most cases, the age and grade of the student at entry and/or exit. It provides a broad selection of the public schools in Sonoma County, California, at the time of recording. The genealogical value of these records is similar, in many ways, to the value of tax records. They place a child in a certain school at a certain date. Because of the sporadic nature of the attendance of some children, one might assume they were either the children of migrant workers or of farm families where they were needed to help on the farm. Copies of the original registers are located in the History and Genealogy Library, Santa Rosa, California, and in the Sonoma County archives. A list of schools is included in this study, and a list of those not included can be found at the History and Genealogy Library. An extra bonus is that in some, but not in all cases, birth dates, information on transfer to or from another location, and notes about irregular or intermittent attendance are included. This is one of a series of publications developed by the Special Projects Committee for the Sonoma County Genealogical Society from data in Sonoma County archives.

Early School Attendance Records of Sonoma County, California: Volume II, 1874-1932, Sonoma County Genealogical Society


4 Early School Attendance Records of Sonoma County, California: Volume II, 1874-1932
Sonoma County Genealogical Society
2007, 8½x11, paper, alphabetical, 394 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Volume II consists of a set of selected school attendance record pages which were duplicated from school registers. This volume contains over 12,000 listings of pupils in nineteen schools and ranges in date from 1874 to 1932. These records do not lend themselves to determining the date of first entry or last record for a given student at a particular school as was the case in Volume I. Record fields include: surname of student, given name of student, parent, address (or general area), school district, date or date range, age and/or grade within the date range, birth date, and left/comments. Many of the schools covered in this volume where also covered in Volume I, so some children may be covered in both volumes, but not necessarily for the same time period. Copies of the original registers are located in the History and Genealogy Library of the Sonoma County Library located in Santa Rosa, California. A list of schools is included in this study.

5 Index To Naturalization Records In Sonoma County, California Vol. I: 1841-1906
Sonoma County Genealogical Society
2001, 8½x11, paper, 236 pp, Heritage Books
In Sonoma Co., the earliest naturalization records date from 1841 and consist of both declarations of intention and petitions for naturalization.

Indigent Records in Sonoma County, California 1878 to 1926, Volume 1: The Indigents, Sonoma County Genealogical Society, Inc


13 Indigent Records in Sonoma County, California 1878 to 1926, Volume 1: The Indigents
Sonoma County Genealogical Society, Inc
2006, 8½x11, paper, alpha., 202 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
A treasure of indigent records has been discovered in the archives in Sonoma County, California. These records cover the period from 1876 to 1926 and give the names of persons who asked for money from the county because they had no other means of financial support. For the most part, these are the people who have "fallen through the cracks" of genealogical research. Most of them owned no property and had fallen on hard times because their primary provider had become ill, died, deserted them, was in jail, or was just too old to be gainfully employed. This publication contains about 1,200 applications that give specific information as to residence; marital status; number of children; names, ages, and birth places of children; nativity of applicant; reason for application; any property owned by applicant; habits of sobriety; any source of income; amount of money per month being requested; and date of request.

Sonoma County Genealogical Society, Inc
2006, 8½x11, paper, alpha., 2 vols., 436 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
A treasure of indigent records has been discovered in the archives in Sonoma County, California. These records cover the period from 1878 to 1926 and give the names of persons who asked for money from the county because they had no other means of financial support. For the most part, these are the people who have “fallen through the cracks” of genealogical research. Most of them owned no property and had fallen on hard times because their primary provider had become ill, died, deserted them, was in jail, or was just too old to be gainfully employed. The format for data presentation is in two volumes. Book One gives information about the applicant, his or her family, and circumstances of the request. Book Two gives a listing of the taxpayers who supported the applicant on his/her request for county funds. The taxpayers who signed the applications for indigents are important because the applications provide a substitute census for the county in lieu of the 1890 federal census, most of which was destroyed by fire. Of the 16,000 signatures, over 8,000 of them occur in the period from 1881 to 1909.

The 1846 and 1857 lists are included in the overall alphabetical list, which provides surname, given name, township and year in an easy-to-read columnar format. The other years, 1862, 1863, 1865 and 1903 are listed separately because they contain additional information including rank and date commissioned in some cases.
