Happy Saturday, All! Today, we enjoy another great tale from the good people at the Old City Cemetery Committee - in this case, it involves a few of those Masons, including a governor, a Canadian rebel, and a doctor. We also learn more about the magic within the El Dorado County Historical Museum. Soon after that at 1:00 pm, archivist James Scott of the Sacramento Public Library's Sacramento Room takes us on a journey to the Depression Era Hoovervilles of Sacramento. To attend, click here for Zoom credentials. Our friends at the West Sacramento Historical Society take us through a terrific presentation on redistricting in Yolo County. And, to the end the day, California Revealed brings us “Preserving Perseverance: Stories of Personal Power and Resilience” features a selection of four films from the California Revealed collection that tell stories of empowerment, connection, and personal growth.

We're back with Day 3 of the Sacramento Archives Crawl. With an eye on better understanding the fight for racial equality in California, the California State Library's California History Section takes us on a journey through the various formats within the Jeremiah Burke Sanderson Collection. We also see photographic documentation of the Old City Cemetery Committee's dedicated efforts to raise $35,000 for the restoration of various headstones in Sacramento's beloved-by-many Old City Cemetery. Finally, brought to us by the Placer County Museums Division, learn about the gritty (and, of course, perseverant) town of Iowa Hill.

Kicking off SAC2021 is this wonderfully unique dive into the holdings of the California State Railroad Museum Library and Archives, the El Dorado Historical Museum, and the San Joaquin County Historical Society and Museum. These presentations on the restorative elements of Blood, Justice, and Water are worth a view.
