Pioneer Data Submittal Form

Please note: Although it is most unlikely that you will experience any problems responding to this form, certain non-standard browsers will not respond properly. If you experience any difficulties, (or if you are not using a forms-capable browser) you may email your response to this form to: srw@wbplawyers.com. If your browser does not support forms please go to GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING

Just a couple notes for submitting pioneer data: Fill out only one form per pioneer.

Please pay CLOSE ATTENTION to the character count allowed for each input item. This count includes spaces. Just in case the form allows you to input more characters, when it's imported into my database, your entire form input will be deleted automatically because of too many characters. TIP: It helps to input long names as: Oliver, JaneElizabet.

Only submit pioneers who, themselves, located in California in 1880 or before. Any submittals with settlement years beyond 1880 are automatically deleted.

Only submit pioneers who, themselves, were born on or before the settlement year. If a pioneer's family settled in 1872, for example, but the pioneer was born in Iowa in 1877, then the settlement year is 1877 ... not 1872.

Thank you for reading and following instructions. It helps all of us.


If you see the words "index.htm" in a data field please delete the words before you enter your own information.
