Southern California Vital Records:  Volume 1, Los Angeles County 1850-1859, by Ted Gostin. title.jpg (5749 bytes)
Although California became a state in 1850, official recording of most vital records did not begin until many years later. In Los Angeles County, for example, the earliest county birth and death records begin in 1873, while city deaths start in 1877 and births in 1879.  This volume begins to fill in these gaps by indexing vital records recorded in a variety of sources, including Los Angeles County newspapers, probate and divorce records, marriage records, California mission registers, local histories, biographical dictionaries, published personal memoirs, and census records.  The area covered includes all of modern Los Angeles and Orange Counties, as well as parts of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.  This will be the first of several volumes dealing with early Southern California vital records.  Additional volumes will cover Los Angeles County in the 1860s, 1870s and 1880s; San Bernardino County; San Diego County; and Santa Barbara County.  Published July 2001.
