    Due to the large number of family trees that have been donated over many years to the San Joaquin County Historical Society, Kennedy Library staff thought it appropriate, both for purposes of access and preservation, to create a genealogy manuscript collection specifically to house this important County resource. Family trees and associated materials included in this collection contain information about San Joaquin County families not otherwise represented in manuscript collections. A related source of genealogical data held by the Kennedy Library is the San Joaquin County Pioneer Register, which holds information on families that came to the County during the 19th century.

    Scope and Content

    The San Joaquin County Family Genealogy Collection consists chiefly of family trees for twenty local families. The collection also contains a ten year run of the Mehrten-Poppe-Kettelman family newsletter: "Mehrtens of the San Joaquin" (1964-1974). Additions to the collection are anticipated.
