1906 Earthquake casualties

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Does anyone know of any source that lists those who died in the earthquake of 1906? I have some relatives who are believed to have perished in the quake.

I suggest you try contacting the Museum of the City of San Francisco. They have lots of information of this type. Their Web address is http://www.sfmuseum.org/

Also, be sure to drop a line to their curator/director Glady Hansen; she's made a lifelong pursuit out of researching casualties of the 1906 fire and quake. Her email address is curator@sfmuseum.org

Good luck!

The list compiled by Gladys Hansen of those who perished in the 1906 earthquake is now online at the SF Museum site: http://www.sfmuseum.org/perished/index.html
