About the Archives

Our archives include many early ledgers and documents from Marysville, California and its surrounding areas in Yuba County. Our staff has been transcribing these documents since last fall and we are just in the beginning. Transcriptions are available here online and the original documents are stored in the Museum archives in Marysville, CA. Actual high-resolution scans of the documents transcribed are available as individual pages for a small fee: $2/per page for museum members, $5/per page for non-members.

Additionally, we hold most of the original marriage certificates issued in Yuba County from the late 1840s – 1920s. A full high-resolution scan of a particular marriage certificate is available for $2/members, $5/non-members.
