Research Contact

The goal of this site is to share historical information with anyone interested in the data.

Space on this site does not permit a full listing of all the research information I have documented during my several years of research. If you are searching for information related to individuals that might have been in the area, or about the town of Bidwell at Bidwell's Bar, please contact me and I will be glad to search my data base to determine if I can provide information for you.

To ask a question about Bidwell's Bar please use the form on the Ask A Question page or if you would rather, send me a direct eMail at: <>


I am interested in obtaining any information or material you may be aware of that would assist in my continued research. Please do not assume I already have the information. My standard response to that is "I would rather have the information twice, than not once!" I would be grateful for any information you are willing to share.

Digital copies of photographs of the area or individuals would be especially appreciated! _______________
