California Town Postmarks 1849 - 1935
This file is intended to be used in conjunction with the California Town Postmarks
1849 - 1935 by John H. Williams to help find Markings and Post Offices in the book.
The book is arranged first by County, then City and Date, there are exceptions in San Francisco.
This file is quite useful if you do not know the County or perhaps the City is unclear
or the marking contains a spelling error. If you want to find "Brockman" but don't know it
is in Lassen County and say the "B" is unclear you can search for "rockman", etc. On the
same line with each city name you have the County. Most internet browsers and word
processors have search functions to permit you to search for any character string.
When you have a match you need to repeat the search as the same name or part
name may also be in other city names. Now you can go to the book and find additional
