Root Cellar - Sacramento Genealogical Society is pleased to announce the release of its latest publication in the Sacramento County Coroner’s Records Collection series, 1887-1969.

Family history researchers with ties to Sacramento County California have another valuable resource for finding clues about their elusive ancestor.

Root Cellar - Sacramento Genealogical Society has just published the second volume of the Sacramento County Coroner’s Records Collection 1887-1969. This new volume consists of three books: Record of Inquisition Certificates, 1903-1907; Coroner's Record of Inquests, 1903-1909; and Coroner's Record - Alphabetical, 1903-1914. The information to be gleaned from these books includes place, date or cause of death; date and arrangements for burial; and property description and name and relationship of the person receiving such property.

Root Cellar volunteers extracted and indexed these records from original books of the Coroner's Office of Sacramento County held at the Center for Sacramento History and acquired through the efforts of the Sacramento Old City Cemetery Committee.

About Root Cellar - Sacramento Genealogical Society

Root Cellar - Sacramento Genealogical Society was formed in 1978 to help members with genealogical research through education, publication of information and preservation of records. Membership meetings are every 2nd Wednesday of the month except July and August and include a formal program/speaker. A daytime workshop is held every 3rd Wednesday of the month year-round. This hosted yet informal gathering is designed for researchers to get help from others with their genealogical “brick walls” and frequently includes an overview of a handy genealogical resource or tool. The society maintains a genealogical library housed at the California State Archives, conducts an annual all-day spring seminar, publishes the periodical, The Preserves, extracts records held at the Center for Sacramento History and sells publications of those records.
