Primary sources include letters, diaries, manuscripts, legal and financial records, photographs and other pictorial items, maps, architectural and engineering records, artwork, scientific logbooks, sound recordings, oral histories, and artifacts.

The goal of is to:
  • Preserve historical resources in digital format.
  • Make these resources accessible to researchers, students and anyone interested in the history of Siskiyou County.
  • Provide a simple and popular web interface so individuals can submit, and therefore preserve, historical materials from personal and family collections.

  • We welcome all comments and submissions of primary source materials from Siskiyou County.
