Families and Individuals

The human history of Calaveras County is a tapistry of stories of individuals, families, and communities and the enterprises they engaged in.  These people and events are interwoven, not easily separated into distinct topics.  The histories presented here were parts of larger studies of land use, but were comprehensive (and interesting) enough to stand on their own.  They are attached below in the alphabetical order shown in this index.  Of course, the entire web site can be searched for any individual or family name in the box above.
