This database indexes the events as reported and published in the 1889 Sacramento Bee, Sacramento California. The Bee had specific columns for births, deaths, and marriages, but other areas of the paper also reported area deaths, divorces, and marriages, and those have also been indexed. Where indicated, names of spouses and parents are also noted. Some events are published but actual date of the occurrence is not known (e.g. miner found dead in cabin) and those have a '?' to indicate that. Several events have multiple citations and in many cases additional information can be obtained from the duplicate indexed material. Events reported are from all over California, mostly northern California, and a few are from other parts of the United States if the people involved were of interest to the Sacramento populace.
