Genealogical Holdings and other Notes:

Maintain a database which includes: obituaries appearing in the Desert Sun newspaper from 1983 until present; local news story citations from local newspapers (Desert Sun & Press Enterprise) from 1983 until present; news story citations from other sources which are relevant to the Palm Springs area (such as the Palm Springs Villager, Architectural Digest, LA Times, Desert Woman, and others); full-text news articles (of local interest) from the Desert Sun and Press Enterprise from April 2003 to current; digital photographs relevant to the Palm Springs area (from May 2003 onward).  Holdings also include yearbooks from Palms Springs High School.

In addition to the obituary database, the library also maintains a database of local news and magazine articles dating from 1983 onward.  From March 2003 onward, most of the articles and obituaries are also available in digital format.  Articles can be forwarded at a cost of $5 per article.

Another valuable genealogical resource includes "Prickly Pears - Portraits of Historical Palm Springs."  This local-history project of the Palm Springs Library is comprised of  videotaped interviews of about 50 residents of importance to Palm Springs history.  Transcripts and indexes of the interviews are available by contacting the library.  Surnames of interviewees include Baker, Bernet,  Bogert, Boyd, Brott, Canales, Clark, Crawford, Critchlow, Crocker, Doyle, Elliott, Freeman, Frey, Henderson, Hicks, Hoff, Kaplan, Kummings, Line, Lipps, Macy, Maloof, Manthey, Marble, Marks, Matloff, McKinney, Miguel, Moorten, Mutascio, Neel, Nichols, Ortega, Parker, Perez, Poliak, Powell, Purcell, Purnel, Reyes, Rosin, Sanborn, Sitter, Summers, Supple, Thomas, Thompson, Twohey, Veith, Von Mastrigt, Wade, Wallace, Watson, Williams.  The collection also includes two videotapes of home movies made in Palm Springs in 1926 to 1929.  Surnames for the home movies include Stein and Henry.

 

 

 

Newspaper Holdings

This list was compiled from information provided by the Library in June 2003.  Collections may be incomplete, particular issues may be missing, and we can make no assurance that the repository will have any specific newspaper in its collection.  Unfortunately, no assurance is made that obituaries will be found in any of the newspapers listed for this repository.  Lookup policy information is accurate as of June 2003 and may be revised at the repository’s discretion.
