A resource sent to me by Lissa McKee, who we meet over the weekend in Sausalito at the Historical Society.
Bob has put together lots of data on the Portuguese of California.
So their were three Lawrence (Cordeiro) brothers Antonio, Joseph, and John that came to Sausalito around the 1870s from St. Jorge Island. I will be posting some new Primary source info to the "Lawrence Library" very soon. I'm very excited to have been in contact with some of Joseph's descendants and to now finally have confirmation they are in fact distant cousins.

VitalChek has provided Americans with official government certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce. We do this as an official service provider for over 400 government agencies throughout the United States and US Territories safely delivering millions of important documents every year.
Apparently you can order Marin county documents through this service. I ordered a few (2 Death Certificate, and 1 Birth Certificate) to see how well it works.
The Anne T. Kent California History Room is an archive dedicated to collecting and preserving information on local, regional, and state history with a strong emphasis on the history and culture of Marin County. Resources include books, maps, photographs, oral histories, biography files, early Marin County voter registers, clippings and ephemera. In the early 1930s, County Librarian, Virginia Keating, started what was to become the California Room with a small collection of books kept in a locked case in the basement of the old Marin County Courthouse in San Rafael, the first home of the Marin County Free Library. Because so little had been written on Marin County history, Mrs. Keating also began collecting ephemera, photographs and other primary sources. The California Room is named after Anne T. Kent, who, in the 1920s, was instrumental in establishing the Marin County Free Library System and in 1974, with Carla Ehat, pioneered the California Room oral history program. Since 1962, the collection has been housed in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Marin County Civic Center. Thanks to the hard work and generous donations of generations of Marin County citizens, our archive has grown substantially. If you have material which you think would be of interest to our collection, please contact California Room Librarian, Laurie Thompson, at (415) 499-3661. Reference queries may be made via telephone, at (415) 499-7419. The California Room Digital Archivist, Carol Uhrmacher, can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
