Root Cellar's Preserves is nearing completion

With the last few pages being finalized, Root Cellar's Preserves edition is nearly ready to be sent to the printers. Some of the articles will be an interview with our Spring Seminar speaker, George G. Morgan, transcriptions of letters from an 1866 California settler to his sister in Missouri, an accounting of an author's discovering family secrets, and a story of a grandmother's "Farina Cake." In addition, the issue will include Glenda's Corner, written by our resident genealogist, queries, an example of one of Root Cellar's previous publications, An Index of Sacramento City Mug Books from the early 20th century, and a listing of some of the many Virginia books donated by Dora MacKay to our library in the California State Archives. Root Cellar members should watch their mail for this edition to be sent out next week. If you are not a member and would like to become one, go to our website for a downloadable application form.
