The California Gold Rush (1848-1855) began in 1848. The news of the Gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad. Learn about several records and resources available that can help you research your California ancestors. This presentation will cover repositories throughout California, important record types, migration routes, cemetery records, beneficial websites, and more. The focus will be Northern California through Monterey Counties and parts of Sacramento. This presentation appeals to genealogists of all levels.
