Save the Records of Our Past

Records of our ancestors provide a link to our past. SBCGS volunteers are in the process of scanning records and indexing data from Santa Barbara County historical records, and we can use volunteers! Contact Dorothy Oksner if you're interested in helping with either scanning or indexing. Indexing can be done at home.
 
Current Community and Society Projects:
 
1.  Making a database of all Union and Confederate Veterans buried in cemeteries in Santa Barbara County. The database includes biographical notes and headstone photos and the burial location.  Contact Dorothy Oksner to volunteer for this rewarding and significant addition to our online public databases. See this page for the cemetery index.
 
2. Indexing Naturalization Petitions from 1929 to 1931 from books at Superior Court. Scanning is currently in process. Indexers will be needed soon.
 
Future Projects:
 
1.  Indexing Birth Records from the County Recorder's Office. Records have not yet been obtained from the Recorder's Office for scanning.
