New tools for genealogists

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Santa Rosa Libraries,New for Genealogists we have two new resources available for your genealogical and historical research!


  • Find local news from small-town newspapers dating as far back as 1690. Research in local histories, military records, and other hard-to-find documentation of family history.

San Francisco Chronicle 1865-1922

  • Search through the full text of early issues, and see exact copies of the articles as printed on the original pages of the Chronicle.

These are available only at the Local History & Genealogy Library, located behind the Central Library in downtown Santa Rosa.
