About Sacramento California, Sacramento Bee Newspaper 1892: Vital Records

Early in California, the Sacramento Bee newspaper reported marriages, deaths, and births not only for Sacramento but also for surrounding areas like San Francisco, Roseville, Yolo County, etc. The index for 1892 contains those births, deaths, and marriages that were published in the paper during 1892. The printed announcement will sometimes give the names of wives or husbands, fathers or mothers, and location of event. If it is a birth the parents would be listed; if it is a marriage, it would be the spouse listed. In the death records it has been clarified in the database record. This database contains the last name, first name, type of event, when it happened and when it was published in the paper. Where possible I have tried to include the names of the parents for the birth citations. This database contains over four thousand names and is a significant help to identify various relationships in the 1890s.
