    Default NMC, but for users of the California State Library in Sacramento

    This is a long shot, but this is the largest group of Americans I know! I am hoping there may be a Cafe visitor who lives in Sacramento and uses the California State Library. There is one page of the San Francisco Chronicle from 1888 that I am very interested in seeing in relation to some historical research. It is available through an on-line database within the library, but not remotely. I will be in the US in May and planning to spend a day or so there on this research, but this one article would be very useful in advance.

    PM me if you have any suggestions.

    Thanks

    Graham

    Hi Graham, I'm almost three years late in responding but just saw this. I'm nearby and (usually) work about a block from the library. If it's still relevant I'm happy to help, just let me know. Tom

    Thank you both for the offer and the link but I was able to see the article in question while I was there with the assistance of a very friendly and helpful librarian. As it turned out, it did not help my research on the possible death in Downieville, CA of an Australian 'bushranger', a Jesse James kind of outlaw character named Frank Gardiner, who ended up in California late in the 19th century and died there sometime later. It was the where and when I was looking for, but to no avail. It will remain a mystery I suspect.
