More Gleanings from Alta California. Vital Records 1851.
Mary Dean Alsworth, Dean Publications, Rancho Cordova, CA, 1982.

Reported deaths, births, and marriages were extracted from the "Alta Californian" newspaper, published in San Francisco. This compilation starts with 1 January 1851 and ends with 30 December 1851. The information extracted was not always in full, but all pertinent information was included from the article. These reports came from all over California and in some cases, outside of California. The entries are arranged in chronological order. There is a useful personal name index in the back of the book.
