Tuesday TIp - New Resource for Sacramento Reseachers

Lots of Root Cellar members have been hard at work transcribing a collection of 20 coroners record books at the Center for Sacramento History. It has been a couple of years with this project and we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Only one more book to finish and then the index book and we are finished. YIPPPPEE!!

 AND now the Center has located approximately 10 more Coroners Record Books.    OH MY!!!

We have just published Volune VII/ Book 14 - 1941-1947. We presented a copy to Patricia Johnson (Senior Archivist (Reference, Government Records & Volunteer Coordinator) this past week. Pat tells us that she has had requests for names that are in our books so they are already being helpful to family researchers. Are you doing Sacramento research? Our books may be helpful to you too.

A very big thank you to Marilyn Ulbricht, our fearless leader, who has put in thousands of hours putting these books together. KUDO's Marilyn!!  Root Cellar members are very proud to be able to give back to the community in our transcribing/indexing program. The Center is thrilled to be getting all this information in a useable form for the public.
