There's Something Special About Being from Sonoma County
We wanted a fun, interactive way to memorialize the history of Sonoma County and pass it along to the next generation of Sonoma County families. We called on locals, born here, from ancestors who traveled with the original Donner Party to newcomers who are just beginning to sink their roots in Sonoma County’s soil, to tell their story. Thousand responded and we selected a few dozen for further research. Through interviews with living principals and with the help of the archives of the Sonoma County Historical Society, we produced the Sonoma County Baby book and this living history project website. Check out the commemorative baby book, fun facts about Sonoma County - including celebrities, infamous citizens, historic landmarks, notable local films and notable family histories. As a living project, we encourage you to submit your Sonoma County Baby story for our next update.
