George Weeks, California Newspaperman

Narrative of the adventures of a newspaperman who lived in early California


Still considered a part of the "Wild West" in the 1870's, California was home to a diverse culture composed of many people. This database, another in a series provided by the Library of Congress, is a narrative account of one man's relocation to the state for health reasons and his establishment of a small newspaper. Written by George Weeks, it begins in 1876 and recounts his many adventures with such people as robbers, murderers, soldiers, Native Americans, and many others. Intended to help researchers understand the broader culture in which their ancestors lived, this work can be helpful for those with Californian ancestors.
