Historic Mines, Historic Towns, Living History

Some of the most famous mines in the California Mother Lode were located in Amador and Calaveras Counties. Mark Twain wrote about the area in his celebrated story "The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" after a memorable visit to the area. The two Counties were once one, but had a political "falling out" and an argument ensued over where the County Seat should be in Jackson, or Mokelumne Hill. As a result, the County of Amador (County Seat is Jackson) split off from the County of Calaveras (the County seat ended up being San Andreas).

Genealogy Musings

Many of the mines in the Gold Country of California employed hundreds and collectively thousands of miners from all over the United States and the world. The timber industry supplied wood for mine timbers, and building materials for the big cities of San Francisco, Stockton, Sacramento and more, employing hundreds more. Farming, sheep and cattle raising were important, and many pioneers moved to Amador and Calaveras Counties, lived, married, raised families and passed on, leaving their legacy in the history of the Counties. Many descendants of those early families are still here today.
