Spotlight: Napa county Library

by Valerie Beaudrault, Assistant Editor


Napa County is in northern California, north of San Francisco. Its county seat is the city of Napa. The Napa County Library has made genealogy and local history resources available on its website.
Newspaper Database 
This digital newspaper collection includes the American Canyon Eagle (2016-2018), Napa Valley Register (1856-2018), St. Helena Star (1874-2018), and Weekly Calistogan (1857-2018). In addition, there are two Napa newspaper index card databases. One is organized by name (1857-1901, 1973-1991) and the other by subject (1973-1991).
