The Contra Costa County History Center maintains custody of and provides access to a major archival collection documenting the history of the County. Below are listed some of the tables from the History Center currently available online. A database marked "Index" is a simple listing of the table, which you can browse. Those databases marked "Searchable" allow you to enter search criteria to query the table contents dynamically. Further information on these searches can be found on the initial search page of each table.
