Racking the Ashes

Raking the Ashes: Genealogical Strategies - Pre-1906 SF Research

New edition!

This highly praised guide to circumventing the enormous record loss in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire has been substantially updated and expanded to include newly released records and necessary information on post-earthquake resources. Written by Research Director Nancy Peterson, this handbook is a must have for researching San Francisco ancestors, providing invaluable guidance on which records were lost in 1906, which records survived, and where to find them. Sources are clearly identified and evaluated, while graphics, statistics, and historical background enrich the text. Not limited to San Francisco, Peterson's solutions for working around lost records will be especially welcomed by researchers wherever natural disasters have destroyed historical documents.
