Genealogy Toolkit: Research Resources
This page is established to provide information on how & where to find certain resources for your genealogical hunt. Though intended to be Contra Costa County specific, often you will want to consult state-wide sources. Many of these are discussed in the NorCal Genealogy Index, an indispensable resource for California genealogical searchers.
(This page will continue grow as more source information becomes available. We invite you to contribute both questions and answers)
A listing of cemeteries in the county and links to some cemetery indices are available.
For a general view of Naturalization documents, be sure to check the section on Naturalization Documents in the NorCal Genealogy Index.
Vital records are those covering births and deaths (and sometimes marriage).
Vital and other records (including some marriage indices) can be browsed at Vital Search http://www.vitalsearch-ca.com
Obituaries & Death Notices
Check the Contra Costa County Library site for obituary information and databases.
Images from around Contra Costa County County are available at the "Penny Post Cards" site on the Rootsweb/Genweb site
