Open Transcribed Book

The handwritten entries compiled by The Association of Pioneer Women of California, spanning over 60 years of The Association’s membership, were transcribed by staff and volunteers of The Society of California Pioneers. Each entry consists of the name of a California pioneer woman, her personal and family information, and remarks about her family history.

A brief note on methodology: Our transcripts are an attempt to make the content of the book accessible to a wide audience regardless of geography or ability. The formatting standards we’ve adopted aim to balance fidelity to the handwritten text while also translating its content to improve access.
