Stories from older Californians shape our culture, communities, and our state.
California history is more than the Gold Rush, San Francisco’s 1906 Earthquake, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley. It’s you, too.
We have all gone through love and hope; ups and downs; and happiness and pain. It’s what makes us unique. Your stories, recollections, and firsthand experiences demonstrate not only your resilience and strength, but also make them invaluable experiences for others to learn from.
