THE YOLO COUNTY ARCHIVE

The Yolo County Archives is the repository for historical records of the County of Yolo. Most of the records have been indexed. Many of the indexes are available at the Archives and others remain with the office of origin.

Because the Archives is affiliated with the Yolo County Library, some of the library’s collection is available for use at the Archives. This includes city directories and volumes on Yolo County history and architecture.

The manuscript collection of the Archives is also a useful resouce for researchers. Approximately half cataloged, it consists of records from twenty-one county departments and fifteen private donors. Records include newspapers, official records, photographs, title abstracts, maps, and blueprints.

The Archives has been funded jointly by the County of Yolo by contributions from the Friends of the Yolo County Archives and by grants from the National Historic Preservation and Record Commission.

One-half hour of free research is offered by Friends of the Archive Volunteers.
