    THE SONOMA COUNTY GENEALOGY SOCIETY

    PRESENTS

    STEVEN LOVEJOY

    Sonoma County District Court Records Indexing Project

    For last two years SCGS volunteers have been abstracting the Sonoma County District Court Records to create the first comprehensive index of these important genealogical records. This presentation will discuss the how and why of the project, give a little California Court history, and show how to use the new index to access District Court Records that can further your genealogical research. We’ll look at actual District Court cases ranging from breach of contract to divorce to even murder. Original District Court Record Books from the Sonoma County Archives will be available for show and tell!

    Steven Lovejoy is a retired chemist living in Sebastopol, California and has been a genealogical researcher for over 40 years. He is one of the Directors at Large of the SCGS and is a Sonoma County Historical Records commissioner. He holds a Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University and leads the Sonoma County District Court records Indexing project.
