Open Transcribed Book

The handwritten book compiled by The Association of Pioneer Women of California, which contains 134 pages and over 800 entries of names and stories of California pioneer women, was carefully transcribed by the staff and volunteers of The Society of California Pioneers in 2018.

Please visit the Table of Contents to find the page numbers and transcribed contents of each page of the book. Each entry consists of the name of the California pioneer woman, her personal and family information, and remarks that she chose to preserve in this unique collection.

When reading the transcriptions, please note that the original writing contained little or no punctuation, as that was the style at the time it was written in the early 20th century. The passages have been transcribed as written, and include spelling and grammatical errors which were made by the original author. Also, if information was not provided, the absence of content has been replaced with an em dash.
