Genealogical Holdings and other Notes:

The Santa Monica Index http://catalog.smpl.org/uhtbin/cgisirsi/pm0GMwh1zf/27490007/55/144/X  (part of the Library online catalog under the Santa Monica History heading) is a selective index to the Outlook from the early 1950s to March 13, 1998, when the Outlook ceased publication.   It also contains citations to a variety of books and magazines that have historical information about Santa Monica.  The Index covers the Our Times section of the Los Angeles Times from its beginning in March 1998 to its cessation in September 2000.  Current indexing is available for the Santa Monica Mirror.   Indexing for the Mirror begins with the first issue of the newspaper on June 24-30, 1999.  The Santa Monica Index is the only available index to the Outlook and Our Times.

The Library also has a file of city directories dating from 1895 to 1961. Directories are not available for every year but the coverage is excellent between 1912 and 1930. City directories list by personal name or by address and also have a classified (yellow pages) section. Besides the address of the householder, the directory often lists occupation and names of wife or husband and children and indicates if someone is widowed. These directories are useful for genealogy and for tracing the locations of businesses and institutions in the city.

Local institutions, such as churches, schools, and hospitals, are part of Santa Monica history. Centennial History: First United Methodist Church, Santa Monica (Jerry Brown); Saint Monica's Catholic Church, 1886-1986 (St. Monica's Church); First Presbyterian Church, Santa Monica, California: the First Hundred Years Centennial 1875-1975 (Carolyn C. Reynolds); A History of Industrial Education in the Santa Monica City Schools from 1875 to 1985 (Joseph S. Manning); A History of the Santa Monica City Schools, 1876-1951 (Donald Cleland); and Public School Register of the Town of Santa Monica District, County of Los Angeles 1892-1893, and Saint John's and Its People by Sister Julia Gilmore represent part of the City's history. The Library also maintains a file of the Nautilus, the Santa Monica High School yearbook.
