California Footsteps

The CA-FOOTSTEPS mail list is just beginning on
February 14, 2000 and will hopefully become a major part of the CAGenWeb Project.



What is CA-FOOTSTEPS?

This list is the place for you to share your original California source material... wills, deeds, bible records, tax lists, cemetery files, pension applications, obituaries, old letters, marriage lists, etc... with other California researchers.

Please note that queries are not allowed.

If you are unsure of what to use for your subject send me an email.

Is the list archived somewhere?

The digest of the mail list is being placed in the CAGenWeb Archives.

Archives Search Engine

If you donít know which specific region to begin in, the California Archives Search Engine is a good place to start. (Or search other States at the USGenWeb Archives Search-Engine.) There you may search by Surname or other key-words.

We hope you enjoy the list!
And please remember... Queries are not allowed!

Thank you for visiting the California Archives
