Something is happening at our Library

Over six thousand books representing most of the U.S. states! Periodicals from more than 300 genealogical societies across the U.S. and Canada! That's what you will find in Root Cellar's library located at the California State Archives building.
 
Volunteers are creating an online catalog of the library's holdings. An older draft list is available as a downloadable PDF file. Eventually that list will appear on the website's Library page (currently empty). For more information and to download that draft listing, click on RC's Library Catalog in the menu to your left.
