The California Biography Project

This Site is part of
The CAGenWeb Project and The USGenWeb Project

This is a new site for which Biographies from the old County Histories and other resources are being made available.
Many of the California Counties already have bios located on their pages, for those that do not, two new sites have been created with indexes and links to sources for the books.
A total of 57 County and City Histories have been indexed apart from what is represented on the individual County Sites.
They can be found on two Sites:
Histories published from 1855 > 1900
Histories published from 1901 > 1933
Some of the smaller California Counties have biographical data in compilations that are geographical in nature.
Please check the Histories for both Northern and Southern California.
The indexes are searchable pdf files.
