Genealogical Holdings and other Notes (extracted from San Diego Public Library website):

 

SDPL subscribes to AncestryPlus.  The database can be used only at library locations.  California Room, Local History, and Genealogy RCC and RGY 2nd floor.  Phone menu - press 1, then 6. 

 

Newspapers are an important resource for local history and Ben Dixon's unpublished history of the San Diego Herald documents San Diego's earliest newspaper.  The newspaper collection includes archival files and microfilm of the San Diego Herald which began in 1851 and the San Diego Union which purchased the Herald in 1860. The two newspapers are made accessible for research by a microfiche index which covers the years 1851-1903 and 1930-1983 [The index for 1981-1983 is on cards].

 

Indexing of the newspaper articles since 1983 is available from an on-line computer system compiled and marketed, with the cooperation of the San Diego Union, by DataTimes, Inc. The DataTimes index dates from 1984 to within the past six days. Searches for citations may be requested in the California Room. This non-fee service is for subjects concerning San Diego County, Imperial County, and Baja California, the same subjects covered in the original San Diego Public Library index. Searches for subjects other than these are referred to DataTimes for fee-based service.  

 

The newspaper archives include many other local newspaper files including Baja California newspapers, and are supplemented by extensive clippings files covering numerous topics from nineteenth century San Diego pioneers to historical and current San Diego business and company information.   Government publications in the California Room include the San Diego Great Registers of Voters, which date from 1866 through 1909. The Registers give country of origin and occupation of the registrant and are frequently used by historians and genealogists. Members of the San Diego Genealogical Society have indexed some of the Registers and the indexes are available in the Genealogy Room at the Library.

 

Other local government publications in the California Room are San Diego Tax Books (1855-1861), and three volumes of City Attorney letters dated 1895 to 1903.  A especially poignant collection are the papers of the California War History Committee: San Diego County (1914-1925), containing descriptions and pictures of servicemen from San Diego who served during the First World War. Related items are the Red Cross Scrapbooks (1917-1918). 

 

The first directory published in the San Diego area was a handwritten one, made in 1807 when San Diego was still part of Spain. Authored by Carlos Fuentes, it lists eighty-four residents from Enrique Acosta to Carlos Zaragosa   No women were mentioned. This directory is part of an invaluable collection of directories which includes San Diego city and county directories from 1886 through 1984, and San Diego telephone directories from 1906 through the present. Community directories other than the well-known Polk books, are also included.
