California Historical Society Tour
Join the CHS staff for a visit to the California Historical Society (CHS) near Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco. She will present a brief lecture and a viewing of selected items from CHS’s extensive collection. CHS represents a rich resource for family history research. Of particular interest to genealogists are early newspapers and periodicals, their Gold Rush and Immigration collections, including diaries, photographs, journals, letters and much more.
The Society, founded in 1871, was an early partner of the California Genealogical Society. It houses materials from the Crocker family that became the foundation of the Society's North Baker Research Library and Fine Arts collection.
