Event Details

Genealogical Legacy of the California Gold Rush, with speaker Jacqi Stevens

People from around the world made their way to California in the mid-1800s, seeking gold. Many returned home as poor as they came; others stayed on, initiating a flow of letters and photographs from far-flung origins. Those mementos can still be found in antique shops in the foothills today. Through case studies of the stories behind several such photographs, learn how the same research techniques we use in genealogy can be applied to discovering the identity of the faces in hundred-year-old rescued photographs.
