Local Records Transcriptions and Indexes
Below are links to extractions or transcriptions of local records completed by Ventura County Genealogical Society volunteers. We make every effort to have accurate information, but inadvertent mistakes do happen. Please be patient with us. If you see something that needs to be corrected, please let us know.                                             
 
The obituary index files have over 32,000 records that are not formatted correctly for the new website database. We are working to get the data in required form. We can look up information if you need something from that file. Use one of the links in this message to e-mail a request for the details.
 
If you would like to search the obituary pages from our old site, you may use Internet Archive's Way Back Machine. Other pages from the previous Ventura County Genealogical Society Archives are also available through that link.
