Yolo County Reference Books and Look-up Volunteers

[ HOME ]

Below you will find books and resources regarding Yolo County that are available for look-ups. If you own any other Yolo County books or resources and will do look-ups, please let me know.

Feel free to request a look-up from the following resources. Please put “YOLO COUNTY LOOK-UP” in the subject line of your request to insure the message is not overlooked or accidently deleted. In the first line of the message please put the name of the resource you are requesting the look-up in.

Please remember that “look-ups” should only take a few minutes of the volunteers’ research time. Volunteers are here to help, but have their own genealogies.

Volunteers doing look-ups in books under copyrights will be obeying copyright laws. For review of copyright guidelines, visit the USGenWeb site.

The Yolo County Historical Society has many current books for sale on Yolo County.
