Help Digitize Geyserville Newspapers

CDNC Project_HE_18780214 Page 4_Page_1CROP




Many of you know of, and have contributed to, the Healdsburg Museum's efforts to digitize our local papers and get them posted online. This is an ongoing project with the California Digital Newspaper Collection at the University of California Riverside. They have successfully completed the first phase of this project, and now have all of the Healdsburg papers entered into this searchable online database. They are now seeking to raise additional funds to add Geyserville's newspapers to this digital archive. Please contact the Healdsburg Museum to find out how you can help.  Call the museum at 431-3325 or email info@healdsburgmuseum.org for more info.
