Discover Genealogical Gems in the California State Archives and Library

Bill Cole debuted this presentation at the National Genealogy Society’s 2022 Conference in Sacramento. Both resources are underutilized compared to the treasure troves of genealogical gems available in them.

Highly rated and stimulating, Bill presents a thorough overview of the resources available AND how to effectively access them. Bill also shares specific examples of actual records found that added to his genealogical findings AND uncovered the fascinating story detailed in his second book: Bullion Bend: Confederate Stagecoach Robbers, Murder Trials, and the California Supreme Court – Oh My!

Appropriate for genealogical societies, historical societies, and conferences. Contact Bill here
