A recent post sought info about the early days of
Monterey County. I would suggest contacting the
history departments at Monterey Peninsula Community
College in Monterey and Hartnell College in Salinas.
Temple Beth El in Salinas may have some historical
records (membership lists, tribute books, bulletins
etc.)and there is a Jewish cemetary in Salinas.
Another possibility would be to scan past issues of
the Salinas Californian and Monterey Herald.
Beyond that I would seek out assistance >from the
Judah Magnes Museum in Berkeley which has a rich
repository of California Jewish history.
