My name is Herbert Good, and I live in San Andreas, California. In 1992 I retired from the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, where I had worked for 34 years in their Missiles and Space Division, for the most part as a Mechanical Design Engineer, and a Systems Test Engineer.
After retirement I moved from the Santa Cruz, California area to San Andreas, and started walking for my health, which led to walking in, and visiting cemeteries. I became interested in documenting the local cemeteries, then decided to research the area newspapers, which started publishing around 1850, recording births, marriages and deaths.
Around ten years ago the state of California decided to restrict access to the county birth and death records, which was to start in January, so I spent the next six months sitting in the Recorder's Office transcribing the records. I managed to complete them up to the year 2000.
If you have ancestry in the Calaveras County area of California, and need a lookup or photograph, please feel free to send a request.
